More specifically, how do I convert MPG files to 3GP everyday at 3.00am?

C:\TV\*.mpg -> C:\TV\*.3gp

It would be more convenient if one video converter program could do all of this but I'm open to using different tools and command line scripting if needed.

Use FFmpeg and write a batch script to control FFmpeg through the command line. Once the script works as expected, use Windows Scheduler to run the script everyday at 3.00am
