HandBrake should be able to handle most of the common video formats.

AviDemux, Handbrake. These are the most common converters avaliable for free.
Also you can use simply ffmpeg or ffmpegX (another howto).
Mencoder is also avaliable.

(Mencoder and ffmpeg are both console based converters. It may take a few hours to get used to them but they can be really good/awesome and reliable. Once you get used to them... you can convert anything, anytime, from any OS. Also, people write frontends for them so you may have to search only (like ffmpegX). You can also write a batch script in terminal to make it convert all your files in a folder for example.)
