I'm looking for some way to batch-encode Uncompressed AVI (with PCM audio) videos recorded with my digital camera.

I've been using VirtualDub, but I can't find an automated/batch way to do it.

I basically want something I can select a folder or group of files (.avi) and automatically applies xvid and maybe mp3 compression also.

Any ideas? Freeware apps or command line tools are ok.

See WinFF:

WinFF is a GUI for the command line video converter, FFMPEG. It will convert most any video file that FFmpeg will convert. WinFF does multiple files in multiple formats at one time. You can for example convert mpeg's, flv's, and mov's, all into avi's all at once. WinFF is available for Windows 95, 98 , ME, NT, XP, VISTA, and Debian, Ubuntu, Redhat based GNU/Linux distributions.
