You may need to  http://ffmpeg.org/download.html download  or 
http://ffmpeg.org/trac/ffmpeg/wiki/CompilationGuide compile  ffmpeg with
libxvid and libmp3lame.

Then, try this :

$ ffmpeg -i INPUT -f avi -vcodec libxvid -qscale 5 -g 300 -vtag divx -acodec
libmp3lame -ab 128k -ar 44100 OUTPUT.avi

And see if it works.

Maybe you'll need to change other settings like the frame size, rate, ...
