[FFmpeg-user] .avi audio question

When creating an .avi I know that using mp3 audio codec can only give 2 channels.  And I know if the source video has let's say 6 channels that the conversion can sometimes fail.  So what is the common alternative to use instead of mp3?  I was thinking either aac or ac3?  I thought aac actually but I had a problem getting the sound to play back with VLC even using -vtag DX50, so I thought I'd ask.  Thanks!
