    I've been using ffmpegx to convert videos to put on my iPod, but I am looking for a new one. With ffmpegx, the only video format that would play on my iPod is .mp4 mpeg, and I can't even transcode .wmv files to play which is wtf lame. So, what do you use to transcode your video?

    VisualHub has worked the best for me...I'm trying to convert all my videos so it will work in iTunes for the various shit that's starting to come out that needs it (Apple TV), and for my eventual iPhone.

    I use low, two-pass, H.264, and force Quicktime decoding (to retain brightness), TV style, and it works great. I save about 33% space while retaining fairly identical visual quality. I couldn't find a working pirated copy, so I paid $23 for it, which was well worth it IMO.

    iSquint is like VisualHub but free, and its restricted to only converting into the iPod format (Visual Hub will convert to just about anything)
