You probably know this but you can use the MediaConverter
https://garage.maemo.org/frs/?group_id=26
on your desktop. Works pretty well. Or why not ssh to your desktop and do the convertion there and then download the resulting low-res video? :-)

The N800 is really a small linux computer with a great community:

Top apps:
*ssh
*xterm
*mplayer
*maemo mapper (can DL google-maps for offline use)
*SIP-support
*Skype

Edit: Thought you meant that media convertion on the N800 depleted the battery, not video playback. My bad.
