Like the OP, I also use ffmpeg, in a user job, thusly:

/usr/bin/ffmpeg -i "%DIR%/%FILE%" -f mp4 -vcodec mpeg4 -b 1200kb  -g 300 
  -ab 192 -s 320x240 -aspect 4:3 "/video/ipod/%TITLE%-%SUBTITLE%.mp4"

You just navigate to the recording you want (via myth) and have it 
processes the job.  I have it output to a directory that is accessible
via http so then she can just hit the web site and start watching.  She
doesn't have to sync anything this way.
