    I use adobe media encoder, but the website builder (that's my little brother, he has some skills, he now works for a company to build websites for university's and such) is experiencing problems and he now uses vimeo to host it with. See this example of our school's newspaper: http://devettevis.nl/

    Just host it on vimeo, after which you embed the code.

    Or you can put it on youtube, go to your video, copy the link to keepvid.com and download the .f4v file (although this is pretty useless as there are more direct ways :p)

    Have you googled it btw?

    but the only problem with uploading it to a Vimeo or Youtube, is
    they put an ugly logo on the video.

    If you want version that doesn't have any logos....
    what's the best way to convert?

    ffmpegX

    FfmpegX is what I use: http://ffmpegx.com/
    It's free, and supports almost everything. However, it doesn't have the greatest interface, but it's usable.

    VisualHub is good, but it is no longer in development.
