Arista Transcoder install arista

Arista Transcoder is designed specifically for this sort of thing. It has many presets for devices including the Ipod Nano. You can convert from a file or a number of devices, such as webcams and DVD drives.

As long as you don't mind using the command line FFMPEG is the best tool for converting video formats.
