While there are tons of applications which may help you in converting the video format, there is one free program called MiroConverter which specializes in converting videos into formats supported by mobile devices like Android devices, iPhone or PSP.

You can drag and drop more than one video files if you want. Then select the output format from the categories given – Apple, Android, Other and Format. As you click on each of these categories you are shown the different devices that you can select – MiroConverter automatically selects the format of video supported by that device. The Format category shows you different types of formats (like MP4, MP3, Theora or WebM) that you can select . The Other category lets you select resolution of your screen device.
