Default Conversions in Linux

For all those of us who use Linux there are a lot of command-line options to transcode videos, but not many GUIs.

I suggest you install MediaCoder, which works pretty well under Linux (using Wine, of course).

However, it seems that Mediacoder running under Wine won't be able to create MP4 containers (at least I can't), but a workaround I could find is to transcode to H.264 inside an AVI container.

I can't try the result, because I don't have the View yet, so if anyone out there wants to try and post their results...
My Players:
SanDisk Sansa View 16Gb / SanDisk Sansa Express 2Gb / Cowon iAudio M3 20Gb
