Just going through my latest "Linux Format" Magazine.
Very good review on main stream Video Transcoders/Converters.
The ones reviewed are: FF Multi Converter(4th), Handbrake(2nd) , IFME(5th) , VLC(3rd) and QWinFF(1st)

They said it was a very challenging picking an outright Winner...
But QWinFF was chosen for it's all round capabilities for both beginners,
and extensive configuration options for advanced users.

It is however only available via PPA via the downloads page link.
Upgrades WIP 2.6 to 2.8 - (6 X 2.6 to 2.8 completed on: 20/02/16 All O.K )

You forgot to mention that QWinFF is not actually a program. It's a GUI wrapper for FFmpeg (quoting the website): "QWinFF provides an intuitive graphical interface.

Instead of "fooling and joking around" in a terminal with commands you might not even understand what it does or what it means, QWinFF provides any user with an easy and understandable graphical interface which also comes with some presettings using the FFmpeg CLI tool for transcoding and/or conversing video's. Especially for those who like to have a graphical layout to understand what they are doing this is a good tool!

For those who like to try it out, please read this installation instruction of their website:
