Hi
You could try: konverter
http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=9884

It is Kde though, but I just installed it from source, ffmpeg is very good, but as you say you will need command line.

There is a good tutorial here:

Hi
is there a guide on how to install konverter on gnome


apt-get install kde :)

Seriously:

There is a deb at:
http://www.kraus.tk/projects/konverter/packages/

I would persist with ffmpeg

"./ffmpeg -i abc.mpg xyz.flv" is not too bad as a command line, make sure you have the latest ffmpeg from the svn repository
