There's also iTunes. Select the video and under the Advanced menu item there is an option Convert to iPod or iPhone version.

For easy-to-use, I'd recommend HandBrake (http://handbrake.fr/)

For powerful, you really can't beat ffmpeg

As parker stated, FFmpeg is the de facto standard for free video and audio conversion. If are afraid of the command line, VLC has a transcoding feature as well.

You can also take at look at Miro or Videora. Miro uses ffmpeg if I remember correctly

Avidemux is simple to use and free.

It has iPhone presets.

Apple has the command line afconvert tool for simple needs. We used 'Amadeus Pro' for our last project.
