what are the good software out there to convert media (videos: avi, mp4,etc, audio : mp3,ogg) files from one format to another?

Eg: I want to convert say a avi to an mp4. How do i do that? Converting an avi to mp3 by extracting just the audio stream.

I have tried using mediacoder and vlc but they are not that intuitive to use.

Is there any other free/opensource alternative out there?

If not which is the best commercial software?
