I've been using Floola


in Sidux for my IPOD Nano 4th gen. 

It's not open source, though, but it does a decent job of managing my multimedia 
stuff. It will convert files using ffmpeg by just dragging them to the ADD box. 

GTKPod wouldn't work with the 4th gen Nano, Apple changed some of the secret 
stuff. I'm sure GTKPod will catch up. 

But I really like Floola, and it seems to be on a rapid development track.
