Sansa Media Converter on Linux?

Is there such a posibility?  Does it exist?  If not, what can be done to convert files to use on a View?

SMC does not work on Linux.  I was not able to get it working in WINE or Codeweavers.  Maybe someone else has, and if so, please let us know Smiley Happy  

 

Your best bet with Linux is to run VirtualBox or VMware and get XP running that way.  USBs work 100% (after a little fussing with Ubuntu, if that is your distro).  You can run SMC that way.  Yeah, it isnt Linux friendly.  Sorry....

These related threads brought me to the video4fuze solution which allows video to be converted for Sansa Fuze on ubuntu.  Confirmed the conversion myself.
