It all depends on what you have. For the OF in the v1, the only program is transcode- this is because this is the only Linux program that can put streams in a mov (qt) container. As for the OF in the v2, it might be possible, but the correct encoding options must be worked out since the player is very picky about the file format (I don't have one to test it out). If you use Rockbox, it is easy, since Rockbox uses standard mpeg1/mpeg2 files.

If you're using Rockbox (which you should :P) it's suuuuper easy:

Just choose "Rockbox" and "Sansa e200" as your target, and convert away.
Otherwise, you might be able to figure out what parameters to use by converting a video with winff and looking at the parameters it passes to ffmpeg.
