Here's the one I use.

Free and fairly lightweight, but has a slight learning curve. It will convert just about every format to anything. It converts audio also. They claim you can even cut a line from your favorite movie and convert it to a ringtone for your phone.

I feel another one might be worth a mention:

Now, they do charge money for the program. I'm just not sure if it's one of those I purchased awhile back, or if I'm still using a trial version. I will say it's a simple, fast program that I also use constantly. I just click a button for the desired format and find the file. I've taken an .avi and turned it into DVD (.vob, .ifo, etc.) and was surprised to see it automatically cut into many chapters.

For most programs like these to work, you'll need to have proper codecs installed. Lately I'm using Combined Community Codec Pack:
