I use mostly Quicktime Pro for converting between different formats.  
Toast also - which includes it's own MPEG-2 convertor.

YEah, the iBook has a problem where it gets too hot and crashes with 
the MLSOD.  Seperating the jobs out helps it.  Pointing a fan at it 
helps more.  These days I use the G5 (same software) for all the video 
stuff - no problems cooling that beast.  WOOOOSH!

I'll bet your iMac won't have any cooling issues.  The iBook is at the 
upper end of practical heat output in such a small chassis.
