I'd recommend you look for a VPS or Dedicated server as opposed to "standard" shared hosting in this instance.

Many shared hosting companies would probably kill off any long-running scripts after a given period of time (and video/audio conversion will certainly fall into this category!), however with a VPS, it's all down to you to manage.

You can get low-end VPS (512M ram/25G disk space) for around $5 USD a month, however I'd check out the bandwidth allowance that you get (remember, all those uploads and downloads will cost you a lot if you exceed you bandwidth limits) and make sure that you've got quite a bit of RAM in the server (at least 1G for this kind of task in my opinion).
