Anybody know of any decent but relatively inexpensive software similar to Sorenson Squeeze that I can buy/download online ...
And where I can then take my Quicktime references files (from AVID) and compress them into .mp4 and .ogg?
Thanks.

Your best option will be to use ffmpeg. It's a command-line tool, but don't let it put you off, it's fairly simple to use once you get the hang of it -- spend an hour or two reading through the manual, take a few notes on the most common flags/commands for your work, and you'll be fine. It gives you far far more control and power than other tools, even tools like Sorenson, and it's really easy to automate for handling entire folders and oft-repeated jobs (just make one batch file to transcode your dailies folder and run it on a 12 hour interval, bam, never think about it again).

It's also the only tool available that can can encode ProRes on Windows.

Check out telestreams line of products they have a lot of great avid integration. And they offer everything from small guy shop to full enterprise solutions.

I like Turbo.264HD for my .mp4 compressions, it's very quick and the results are great. I also often use QTPro for conversions to various formats. MPEG Streamclip is also a great tool.

I have Telestream Episode, but honestly can't remember the last time I launched it - every request for file formats has been filled by the aforementioned.
