Well, it a nice and very simple tool.
The only problem is that it's based on avilib which I'd call avicrap.
That is, it takes perfect AVIs and transforms them into a crap that even
mplayer cannot play! (as for windows tools - forget it).
It rounds audio rate in bizarre way. It sets flags in the header to
arbitrary - and compiled in - values. After few hours hacking (thanks to
mplayer -v that shows more info about AVI that avilib ever cares about)
I've managed to merge some AVIs into something mplayer-playable.
Still, (after burning a CD) I found that Windows Media Player GPFs on
them. So - I'm using VirtualDub now (until mplayer -odivx will be
able to save sound as well).
