Vorbis audio in AVI is inherently impossible due to the limits of AVI.
You need to either reencode the audio to mp3 or something else that
works in AVI, or else use a different container (Matroska or OGM),
which would require muxing with a program other than mencoder since
mencoder only writes AVI or MPG output.
