Can WMP be configured or extended to transcode files to MP4 when syncing to an external device?

In particular, I'd like to sync videos to my Sony NWZ-S616F walkman.

It appears a third party conversion application is required to convert video into a format supported by the Sony Walkman.

I've tried the iWisoft Free Video Converter which has a conversion profile called "Walkman Video (*.mp4)".
