For ASF > AVI
Check out http://www.geocities.com/myasftools/index.html - quite easy to use.
* Not all ASF files are non-forwardable! * To be able to forward/rewind an ASF movie, it has to be INDEXED when it was created. Else, you will have to re-encode it with indexing, to enable this.
For AVI > MPG (VCD/DVD)
TMPGEnc is the choice!
For downloaded movies, generally you will require DivX, Xvid or others as mentioned by caseytan.
* If you download codec packs, please note that they usually install various other software that are not required (e.g. video players).
