VLC can encode and decode this container.
The module name to use at the command line is avi.

AVI (Audio Video Interleave) is a popular container format used to hold video and audio data.

To play an AVI file, the audio and video files need to be encoded with codecs the player understands.

AVI files aren't designed to hold subtitles. Also, they don't support some features which more recent container formats support.

Note: The VLC AVI muxer is severly broken. In newer VLC version you should use the ffmpeg muxers instead. (This basically means: delete your avi mux plugin file)
