You said a lot there.
I have not converted/transcoded videos, but I believe I have seen references to Handbrake being used for that purpose. (I did open one mp4 file with Kino and it was converted to either DV or avi, I do not recall at the moment. It was a clip from a GoPro camera which a friend wanted me to trim.)
I have used Brasero to burn iso disks and data disks.
