    HandBrake is open source and has a preset for iPod and iPhone/iTouch.
    There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.

    there's also ffmpegx and iSquint (if you can find it now it's been discontinued)

    VisualHub is the iSquint replacement, although I can't remember if it's free or not.

    ISquint was the free, cut-down version of the paid for, and more comprehensive, VisualHub

    Sadly both have been discontinued.

    iSquint is still available on a few third party download sites
