Converting .mp4 files

This is on a Macbook Pro.  I ripped several cd's with a program called Handbrake and converted them to .mp4 files.  This works fine on my ipad but it is not the right conversion for my ipod classic.  Is there a program that I can batch covert several mp4 files so they would be able to play on my ipod classic?  It would be nice if there was a free version.

    Avidemux has a built-in profile for iPod-compatible MP4 files and can batch process.  It is also free.
