Best way to convert video for YouTube

Due to the very large of variety of devices used for capturing video these days you might end up with different video formats, some of them not supported by YouTube. Mobile Phones, Camcorders, Digital Cameras, webcams and more could be used for video recording. 

In addition to the different types of devices each manufacturer has his own way of handling video encoding which means that the chances of ending up with an unrecognized file type might be even higher.
