Which video converter are you using ? Why ?

I downloaded some videos from internet, but it's RMVB format which can't playback by ME1. So I used WinAVI to trasncode it to AVI for playback. I'm wondering what is the most popular, best quality and free transcoder are available.
Please give your opinion which is the best video converter for you, and why you think it is the best.

Copy recorded AV to PC

There are two major partitions while initialize HDD installed in ME1.
Linux partition is for timeshift and AV in record space.
FAT32 partition is for photo/music/movies storage space.

If you would like to copy recorded video to PC, then you need copy video to FAT32 partition first, and then copy to PC through USB connection.

Copy to FAT32 method :
Playback -> Title Edit -> Copy to FAT32 partition
Video will copied to \REC folder.

Since it has LAN port, will it act as network file server ?

The LAN port is for playback files from any system connected in the same network but can't copy files.
