HandBrake – the ultimate free video converter.

If you are searching for a free powerful Video/Audio converter, then I recommend HandBrake- an open-source, GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded video transcoder, available for MacOS X, Linux and Windows.

The ‘Live Preview’ feature included in this master piece makes user to decide the quality of product even before encoding. HandBrake utilizes the multi-threaded CPU efficiently and converts within a short duration.The ability to encode into the common format-”MKV” with high precision audio sync is remarkable.NDTV has reviewed HandBrake as the best Video converter software of 2011.
