Libavcodec is simply too powerful.

dd if=/dev/urandom bs=1m count=500 >> your_900mb.avi

Every single frame is already encoded at the minimum quantizer (2) and
libavcodec simply can't produce more bits.
Hints (choose one or more and retry) :
- use a sharper rescaling method, like -sws 9 or 10
- use mpeg quantizers
- increase encoding resolution, try scale=704:304,crop=704:432:8:75
(only scale Y axis)
- go for one CD
