Is there any software application I could use on Ubuntu that would allow me to transcode videos into different formats? i.e avi into mpeg

If you are prepared to put a bit of work into it FFmpeg is your best answer:

HOWTO: Install and use the latest FFmpeg and x264

Bear in mind FFmpeg can be relatively simple, it's just seems the CLI puts people off. FFmpeg allows you to tweak to virtually any level
