    I too will second HandBrake. I just used it for the first time tonight and it worked flawlessly.

    No idea for a Mac, don't own one. If you own a PC, videora is ok (as long as you don't have a 64-bit OS). Xilisoft Converter 3 is the best I've found to date. Can batch converter by simply dragging the files you want/folder, and if you own a dual core or a quad core, it can do multiple threads. It costs money, however. I'm not sure how much it costs, as I "attained" it. I definitely recommend it. With my X3350 @ 3.6ghz, I can converter four 40-minute tv shows in 4 minutes. It's pretty impressive. Other converters took as much as twice that for the same show.

    The Best of the Best is Visual Hub. It is the easiest, fastest and most elegant video converter have ever used. Before I used Visual Hub, I had and used Handbrake which was perfectly fine, but I highly prefer Visual Hub. Simple, reliable and fast... All around the best in my opinion.

    VisualHub also has a free converter called iSquint. It works flawlessly and doesn't cost money like VisualHub does.

    While you're on MacRumors Forum and you didn't specify for PC so the assumption of course is Mac.

    I recently found this converter for the PC:
    http://mediacoder.sourceforge.net/

    So far it's been working very well for me. I've downloaded and installed both the general coder and the iPhone/Touch specific one, and use the iPhone/Touch to convert my videos for the Touch, and the general one for all my other conversion tasks. It does give you more options that you know what to do with -- I just ignore the settings unless I know what I'm doing.
