Sonic offers Roxio Crunch for Windows Sonic Solutions' Roxio division is now offering a version of Roxio Crunch, an application made to easily convert video content to formats required for Apple devices including iPhone, for the Windows operating system. The software offers a one-step process for converting a broad range of the most popular video formats including DVD-Video, MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and DivX files into a format recognized by these Apple devices.
The application includes powerful transcoding technologies and pre-defined device profiles to ensure optimal playback regardless of the screen size. It can convert native QuickTime file formats, such as DV, AVI, MOV, and MPEG and non-QuickTime file formats, such as MPEG-2 and DivX. It can also convert DVD movies and discs created with Toast, iDVD, DVD Studio Pro, and other DVD authoring applications.

For the video output, the program offers multiple MPEG-4 and H.264 quality settings tailored for use with iPhone, iPod and Apple TV. Converted videos are automatically added to the iTunes library for easy syncing with devices. A cross-platform version will be available early next month through North American Apple retail stores and other software resellers for a suggested retail price of $39.99.

This sounds great, but why not just use freeware alternatives?

I agree i would not pay for this if there is a freeware version. However if i had to purchase a program to do this. I would just go with Nero.
