FWIW I used this to get video from myth to my n95 in working order. I  
just got a n900 and haven't had a chance to see if this still works,  
but it's worth a shot:

ffmpeg -i  mythfilename.mpg  -f mp4 -r 30 -vcodec mpeg4 -b 384 -qmin 3  
-qmax 5 -g 300 -acodec libfaac -ar 44100 -ab 192 -s 320x240 -aspect  
16:9 -title "YourTitleHere" nokiaoutfilename.mp4 -v -1

Probably should change the aspect ratio at least!
