Nero doesn't convert video formats like .avi to .mp4, to use on an ipod.

I need a free video converter, ive tried cucusoft and alivemedia... cucusoft puts a watermark on the output if I dont buy it, and alivemedia doesnt seem to like my computer very much, ive been getting a shitload of error messages everytime I try to convert anything at all. so... im trying to get movies on my damn ipod, does anyone know of a good program that converts .avi to mp4? it must be free
my band - definitely not our material, old stuff our now ex-guitarist posted.

dont judge a guy by the guitar he plays, but how he plays it
