Any video converter is a top choice if you want to convert your videos to the mp4 format. It also supports other format conversions, like video conversion for uploading it to the youtube, uploading to blackberry and other smartphones. You can easily adjust the bitrates, video quality and sound quality. In full version (Any Video Converter Pro) you can also crop video, can adjust contrast and brightness. I think this package is enough for basic video editing and ultimate conversion.
The interface is simple, from the right options menu, you can select the format, bitrate of video and audio (Keep bitrate low like 312kb if you want to play videos on mobile) and also screen resolution of video. I suggest you playing around with options and soon you will find the right setting.

You can convert any format of video to PSP , iPhone and mp4 video using format factory. It has also option to batch convert the videos from a DVD disc or a drive.

Super video converter is actually quite simple to use but it has a large number of video conversion options, like first you can convert to mp4 and other than that 3gp, avi, flash , swf and gif. The conversion goes quite smoothly if you have a good speed free of malware computer. It can also take out audio from the video, to help those who actually want to hear the audio. I have used both any video converter and super video converter and both seem to do the job for which they are developed. You can also select the required bit rate, screen size , audio and video quality in super video converter.
Quick Media Convert:
Like other video converters this also has all the required format support. You can convert audio as well as video files. The different thing is two different types of modes which it offers to its users. One mode is “The Easy Mode” , it offers you minimal of the video conversion options, just select the output format and you are ready to convert. However in the advanced mode you can edit a lot of things of your input video. Quick Media convert is also a freeware to convert your videos into any format desirable.
