    Dont mind if i have 2 copies, but is there any free apps to convert .avi's? Also something with a pre-set that has things such as PS3, iPod Touch etc. would be great, it seems Handbrake cant do this.

    FFMPEG will do it, and has the presets. VLC can also do it.

    i tried just about every free software there is trying to do this... i don`t know how these .avis are encoded, but mine were either DivX or XviD (one of those...) and it was a total nightmare to get them onto my ipod in watchable quality, and with sound to boot.

    it isn`t free, but if none of the free ones work for you, VisualHub is totally worth it. very cheap, very fast and very user-friendly, and includes presets for all of the above (well i`ll get back to you about ps3.. :p)

    iSquint is free and simple, or you can upgrade to VisualHub for more advanced tinkering. VLC also has lots of tinkering features.

    FFMPEGX Just basically '****s' the aspect ratio, no matter what i use, only 2 out 10 have actually worked, and kept the ratio :mad:

    iSquint is next stop.
