command line: ffmpeg

gui: handbrake (and others). there is a handbrake RPM around somewhere... think I found one in a mythdora repo

Take a look at mencoder (available in the RPMFusion repo). It's a pretty comprehensive video encoder/converter.

mencoder can do just about anything, but is a command line tool and requires some study.

For an easy (beginners) option, just install vlc from rpmfusion (http://rpmfusion.org/) and go to Media -> Convert/Save

yum install vlc
