I have been using tovid (http://tovid.berlios.de/en/index.html) with
great success. If you add Marillat's deb archive
(http://www.debian-multimedia.org) to your /etc/apt/sources.list you
can install all of the required programs to make tovid run with

Julien Valroff has also make deb packages for Tovid available at
http://packages.kirya.net however there is not currently a package
available for Sarge so I can not vouch for it. Since Tovid is
essentially a collection of perl scripts, it is very simple to install
from source.
