How about reading the messages from the log? It's very clear:

xvid: you must specify one or a valid combination of 'bitrate', 'pass', 'quantizer' settings

How you expect to get a usable file without specifying any parameters
like bitrate is beyond me. This isn't macintosh where the crappy
encoding software just picks a bitrate for you and makes an ugly
blocky movie...
