know a good, free video converter? I'm a little wary of just looking myself, cuz I've gotten nasty viruses before while searching in the past.

Well that is fine if she wants to convert to x264 but it won't do Xvid anymore.

Does anyone even care about Xvid anymore. Practically everything now supports H264.

Mencoder. Convert anything to anything. You will need Linux and a love of the command line though. I normally just cheat and use ffmpeg for most things I must admit.

Viruses will not be a problem. ;)

Yes, quite a few people still use it because of the lower system requirements and there are still alot of DVD players (which as still selling) that can decode xvid but not h264.

I use avconv, which is a tool for running stuff through libav. It's free, very fast, and extremely powerful.

My brother prefers MediaCoder, which is basically a Chinese (they have an English version tho) frontend for libav/ffmpeg. It supports OpenCL and CUDA and other nifty things, but I found it to be horribly unreliable.
