iFFmpeg is a front-end for the popular conversion software FFmpeg. It should be noted that iFFmpeg by itself can't do anything. You need to compile FFmpeg or download an already compiled version of FFmpeg and put it in Application Support/iFFmpeg for the app to work. There are links for FFmpeg compilations on the iFFmpeg website, though this is easy enough to do. Once the application is set-up, you can start converting your files. FFmpeg can do much, and iFFmpeg provides a graphical user interface that allows you to use the full potential of this wonderful component.

There are a lot of supported formats. For example, iFFmpeg can output files into AVI, MP4, MKV, WMW, 3G, FLV, MOV, OGG, M4A, MP3, and M2TS, to name but a few. There are lots of settings that you can play with to achieve an ideal conversion. If you simply change the format, you will still be able to convert files quite well.

I tested this app without changing any settings and converted an AVI file into an MP4 file optimized for the iPad. The process took 20 minutes for a 40-minute file and the file was twice as big as the original one when the conversion was done. By tweaking some settings, I managed to reduce the size of the file without losing much quality.
