Tmpeg equivalent for linux?

There is a program for windows called Tmpeg. It can convert any file into an mpeg. Is there a linux equivalent for this?

I tried mplayer with "-vo mpegpes" but the file becomes insanely large.

For mplayer (or mencoder), you need to look into the -ovc, -oac, and -of options to create MPEG files. Transcode is another good tool for this (I prefer it to mencoder).
