Best way/software to encode video and audio?

What is the best way to encode video and audio and convert between different format and codecs? I heard something about some software called handbrake, Is that a good software for that? I'm just asking I don't know much about this, and I also need something to encode FLACs(I know Audacity can do that but if I'm not mistaken you have to load each file separately, Is there any easier way to do this?)

  1. Handbrake is good http://handbrake.fr/ and so is MPEG Streamclip http://www.squared5.com/ and both are free. I don't anything about the FLAC format but this site http://xiph.org/flac/download.html may help with an encoder.
  2. Handbrake is fine, but the latest version only supports MP4 & MKV.. i never stick to one tool & so i use some other converters based on the requirement
