How do u usually convert video (like dvd, rmvb and even flv ) to the format that ipod supports? Any useful software to recommend?

x264 and RTFM. Look at what profile the iPod supports, then encode it with x264. use lavc or ffms2 for your source in x264 to make sure it reads whatever crap you're feeding it properly. Mux to MP4 with whatever tool you feel like. Audio I have no idea but it probably plays anything standard and lossy that isn't Vorbis.

x264 for video (if you don't know command line, google a GUI for it)
AAC for audio (nero's not bad...)
.mp4/.m4v container

And there's tons of programs that can try to automate this for you, like MeGUI, HandBrake... etc.
I think even Zarx264gui might work if you use level 3.0/Baseline.
Now, it's worth noting that if you are going to dl any type of converter, try to get one that doesn't mess with your codecs/registry.
If you don't know what that means, be sure to re-install CCCP afterwards in order to fix anything the converter may have broken.

MpegStreamclip also werks as an all around converter. It can take pretty much anything you throw at it to convert. But ignore the preview window quality, the export is gonna be fine.
