AVC in AVI is a hack at best. Either WMP supports AVC out-of-the-box or
it doesn't. The container the video stream is in is irrelevant. If WMP
supports AVC, but not MP4 or Matroska, MPEG-TS is an appropriate
container. If it doesn't support AVC, -vcodec copy will give you
unusable output 100% of the time.
