    Handbrake. Also now has support for Bluray.

    You'll need to load the PPA too from the link below...

    I heard that ffmpeg is fastest. Also I never faced an issue in converting avi or flv to mp4. I hope this might help you.

    I have AVIdemux and Handbrake installed
    xxx => AVI .... go with AVIdemux
    xxx => MP4 or MKV ... go with Handbrake
    Based on my experienced Handbrake is the BEST ... it's FAST

    You would simply be swapping containers so there are many applications that will do this. My own personal favourite is mkvtoolnix and this one is always handy to have available...

    Current ffmpeg example (not sure if it will work with the libav chaff in the repository):
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i input -codec copy -map 0 output.mkv
    This will copy all input streams (video, audio, subtitles, data, etc) from the input to the output without re-encoding.
