SUPER is a lightweight video and audio transcoding tool that will quickly convert just about any media file into the format you need.

The program is able to convert audio files to and from any of the supported formats: aac, ac3, amr_nb, amr_wb, ape, flac, mmf, mp2, mp3, mpc, ogg, shn, tak, tta, wv, wav and wma.

Video handling is even better, with SUPER importing 3gp, 3g2, amv, asf, avi, dat, dvr-ms, fli, flc, flv, m2ts, mpg, mkv, mov, m4v, mp4, nsv, ogm, qt, rm(vb), str, swf, ts, trp, ty, ty+, tmf, viv, vob and wmv files.

And there are surprising extras. SUPER can convert a sequence of JPEGs into a time-lapse effect video, for instance, create animated GIFs, and even record streaming video and audio files using all the major protocols (http, mms, rtsp).

The program's interface isn't exactly designed for user-friendliness, though, with complex options crammed in everywhere you look. Still, if you're an experienced user then you'll appreciate the fine control you get over every conversion setting. And if you're a transcoding novice, then built-in presets will save you time.

To convert a file to play on the iPod or iPhone, for instance, choose the "Apple - iPod / iPhone (MP4)" Output Container and all the key settings will be configured automatically. Then drag and drop your files onto SUPER, click the Encode button, and it'll convert the clips for you.
