    I have a ton of movies in AVI format and i need to change them into MP4s or various other file types. any one know of a good program that will convert most video files if not all? any help would be appreciated.

    FFmpeg

    FFmpeg if you enjoy compiling and command line
    FFmpegX if you want an easy to use GUI.

    i didn't know you could use handbreak to just convert files. i thought it was only for ripping dvds.

    As of version 0.9.3 it will work on most video formats, not just VIDEO_TS folders.

    If you're converting the old MS AVI container ffmpeg would work. I'm not sure if Handbrake does the old AVI format from MS.

    so you can take a video file from your pewter and reformat in hand break??
    you dont have to mount it as a disk image or anything?
