    Anyone know of some 3gp/mp4 video converter for linux? I have searched a lot on google but found nothing.
    I would prefer a native application, not one running on wine
    EDIT: preferably an free/open source application.

    I don't know which Distro you are using but I can use FFMPEG to convert from one format to another and that includes 3gp/MP4. Have a look at it...

    ffmpeg is really great. Does work great for now. Just need some more understanding of all the parameters. Some hit and miss trials will give me more ideas.
    For right now, I downloaded ffmpeg svn, as Ubuntu's ffmpeg didn't have amr support, which is needed for 3gp.
    For 3 gp support, have a look at
    http://www.rezsoft.org/3gp/ - it has a nice script.
    and this thread http://lists.mplayerhq.hu/pipermail/ffmpeg-user/2006-July/003509.html
    Another link that helped me http://vardhman.blogspot.com/2005/05/video-encoding-from-frames-in-linux.html

    BTW, JGuru, Xamoz can't be found.

    Sorry @Tech_your_future. The Xamoz project is in pre-Alpha stage!!
    Why the SourceForge guys have given the download link!!
    You can try MediaCoder, an excellent Audio/Video batch converter tool.
    Get it from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mediacoder/
    Download the 'Full' version with 'Extra plugins'. This one works!! I checked it.
    MediaCoder works only in Windows O.S!!

    That last link Swik.net was good. They are on-going projects.Hopefully they should be
    available in around 6 to 8 months time.
