Which ones? It *has* to be a streamable format (so AVI is out) and 
ultra-low-bitrate, down to ISDN rates (so MPEGs are out).

According to avifile.sourceforge.net , DOCS, SUPPORTED COMPRESSION FORMATS:
# Audio
# Win32 ACM DLLs, decompression-only support:
Windows Media Audio ( also known as DivX ;-) Audio )
Intel Music Codec
It seems that *any* use of codec DLLs as encoder is simply not supported.

Looks like the *only* way is to use wm8eutil under wine, which seems 
possible - but the only pages I found so far are in Japanese!
