    Hello everyone,
    I would like to ask a question that probably has been answered before. If so could anyone direct me to proper link if possible?
    I would like to use some good effective software that could convert video files between all popular video formats on the fly. I have googled for it, and OMG, there are so many, some free, some for money, that I got no idea which one is actually good. If anyone has some experience on this field, please give me a tip.
    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Note, the names of encoders and decoders dont always match, so there are
    several cases where the above table shows encoder only or decoder only entries
    even though both encoding and decoding are supported for example, the h263
    decoder corresponds to the h263 and h263p encoders, for file formats its even
