What codec would you like to use? You have to output into *some* format.
The resulting video file can be either in an MPEG container or in an AVI
container (or others if support is ever added), but the video itself has
to use some codec, and MPEG-4 is AFAIK one of the best (particularly
libavcodec's implementation).

I suppose what I'm asking is, what end product do you want? What are you
trying to get out of the process, once you've completed it?
