    For the PC I have a suite of conversion programs by ImToo and Xilisoft which is basically a suite of programs to convert many media types any way you want such as mp4 to wmv, avi to wmv, wmv to avi, mp3 to others, etc. Basically you can convert any video or audio program between many formats. I'm not as concerned with picture formats since I think I can change these in Adobe PhotoShop and mostly just use jpg anyway.
    These programs will also convert video to be uploaded to a ipod, sony psp, etc. These are for the PC now and since I have my first Mac I'm looking for something similar to this for the Mac. Any suggestions?

    For Audio use Max ( http://sbooth.org/Max/ ) which is free.

    For Video you can use one of the following:
    1. ffmpegx (http://www.ffmpegx.com/), its shareware but most of the features are available in free version.

    2. use visualhub (shareware, but more advanced) or iSquint (free, but only converts to iPod compatible video). Both are from : http://www.techspansion.com/ .

    There are also bunch of other programs which can do certain things like rip DVDs, make iPod files etc. etc. You can find those on macupdate.com or versiontracker.com
