Hello everyone. I am the owner of a shiny new iMac , aluminum and all.

I am ready to do more heavy duty resource demanding things that my trusty but aged G4 Powerbook can't handle too well.

One of them is video conversion.

I have a huge database and collection of avi files that I need to convert to iPod format (I think that's MP4?).

Can someone recommend a good program?

Freeware, Shareware, Retail, anything to get my job done!

I really appreciate your input, guys!

    I just use Quicktime Pro honestly. Can't say I've had any problems with it.

    iSquint is by far the best freeware program. VisualHub is made by the same people and you have to pay for it, but it converts faster and allows for tons more file types. VisualHub is probably more than 30% faster from what I've seen. Another thing that I would recommend is to use both at once, gets the job done a lot faster if you have tons of videos - that's what I do.
