Gui to convert MPEG1/2 to Xvid


I was wondering if anyone could recomend a program which could convert a MPEG1/2 movies into a 2-pass VBR XviD movie?

I currently use DVD::RIP to do it for DVD's, but I also wanted to do this from my MPEG's.

Thanks

use mplayer, it really is very easy to learn to use without a gui.

the next release of http://acidrip.sf.net will do what you want, but i've not finished it yet...

See command line is not really what I'm looking for, unless its a simplified wrapper for all the tools. I don't want to have to worry about muxing/demuxing, setting up each pass, and all the other stuff. I'm looking for somthing like dvd::rip where I just put in all the settings i want, press transcode, and wait.

I'll look into acidrip, maybe thier CVS, or if they have an unstable version include the feature i'm looking for
