    IMHO this is the best:

    Depends on what you would like as output and what you are using as input. Personally h/x264 mkv is my preference as they are pretty transportable.

    Handbrake lets me work with almost any input I currently use (DVD/MPEG2, divx/xvid avi etc.) so I vote Handbrake.

    Cheers,

    Hank

    Yep, handbrake is a great application.

    Just to point out that if you want to use it with 10.04, you need use the handbrake repository to get the snapshot version as the release version at handbrake.fr won't work with 10.04.

    Edit: just noticed the download page is updated.

    Good point, fail on my part for not including any additional info.

    I use John Stebbins PPA for my handbrake snapshots: https://launchpad.net/~stebbins/+archive/handbrake-snapshots

    ffmpeg. if you're planning on doing any serious encoding I recommend adding the medibuntu repositories.

    I use WinFF - GUI for FFmpeg. It works great!
    Where's [slooksterpsv] been? - I had Catastrophic partition alignment failure. I lost 90%+ of my data, and just now got it back fixed and working.
