newbie: Captured videos from PC to MAC

Alrighty, well just started the switch. I am waiting for my G5 to arrive this weekend, but before that, the main focus I need to concentrate on is taking my videos and clips captured from their sources onto a windowsXP PC and transferring them to the MAC.

The file extensions I will be mostly dealing with is .AVI, .MPG, .WMV

Is there a way to convert the .WMV to a file that is more compatible with MACs? I don't want to have to worry about finding specific players and all this. Not to mention, I hope to finish editing these files in the future on the MAC using final cut pro, or other software.

Anyone recommend anything?? Thanks!!

ffmpegx works nice. I just used it to convert an .wmv to mpeg, worked great.
