it's basically a version of winFF that's targeted to produce files that play well on the OSD. It's also worth noting that if you are transcoding VOB files from DVDS, handbrake
works well, if you just change to the h.264 setting to MPEG-4 (everything else can be left at the defaults). Keep asking if you have trouble, I found learning this stuff to be very miserable and I'd like to spare you the trouble if possible.
