New ways to convert video without SMC

Having trouble with Sansa Media Converter?  Out of the goodness of their hearts some programmers have made alternatives.

First there is the widely used and much-praised video4Fuze

And now there are some new ones. Programmers, I salute you. If I"ve missed anyone, please add your program to this thread. People needing help, go to the individual threads. 

FuzeVidz

Using XMedia Recode

I would add Avi Mux GUI to the list, it isn’t optimal, but it’s an alternative, though.

 Xmedia Recode method relies still in SMC.

And I think that ewelot’s pvc.sh script should be mentioned too.

Also, video4fuze link points to original ewelot’s thread (that link would be more suitable for pvc.sh, IMHO). I think it should link to either lastest video4fuze thread, or to http://code.google.com/p/video4fuze/

For resizing my existing AVI movies (converted from my personal DVDs using  FairUse Wizard 2) I’ve been using FuzeVidz and it works really well; after using FuzeVidz, you simply drag-and-drop the resized movie to your Sansa Fuze (bypassing Sansa Media Converter). I’ve also used XMedia Recode  and it also works really well, but you still have to run it through Sansa Media Converter to get it onto your Sansa Fuze.

If it’s free, why doesn’t it say it is on the website you linked too?

And why pray tell, is there a Buy Now button?

<sniff> <sniff> . . . Smells like a canned pork product to me! :angry:
