What software will allow me to record from a FireWire source directly to a compressed format that I can deliver to workshop attendees?

We will be hosting a Radio/TV workshop participants will be doing exercises at different stations where they will generate both audio and video content. They will rotate through these stations quickly. Each participant will have a jump drive that they will give to the administrator of each session. Their session will be "recorded" to the jump drive and then they will take the drive with them to the next session...Rinse Repeat..
I'm OK with the audio sessions recording directly to MP3 but what is the best software to use for the video session? The video files will end up being 2 - 5 minutes long.
The easiest workflow that I can think of that will generate a widely compatible compressed file is to use Windows Media Encoder Its easy to setup a recording profile and easy to record the compressed video directly to a file in real time.
I'm not sure this is the best way so if any one has other workflow recommendations I would appreciate hearing them
