A couple of video transcoder GUIs which look interesting. See
http://lwn.net/SubscriberLink/333904/1e8930cff396a065/ for an overview.

1) Arista: http://programmer-art.org/projects/arista-transcoder

"An easy to use multimedia transcoder for the GNOME Desktop. Arista
focuses on being easy to use by making the complex task of encoding for
various devices simple. Pick your input, pick your target device, choose
a file to save to and go."

2) Transmageddon: http://www.linuxrising.org/transmageddon/

"Transmageddon is a video transcoder for Linux and Unix systems built
using GStreamer. It supports almost any format as its input and can
generate a very large host of output files. The goal of the application
was to help people be able to create the files they need to be able to
play on their mobile devices or for people not hugely experienced with
multimedia to generate a multimedia file without having to resort to
command line tools with ungainly syntaxes."

Why both? Arista is simpler, Transmageddon is more flexible but
currently relies on devel version of Gstreamer. See the article
referenced above.
