DivX is just a codec, AVI is the file container.

What it means is that you can rename all .divx files to avi or vice-versa and it is OK! It also means that you can use any codec and save it as AVI, and it is also OK!

While avidemux stores data in AVI, you can most probably select the codec as DivX.

PS: Have you tried XviD?

Divx is an avi format and so is xvid.Where you might run into problems is some apps (like the divx player on my cell) are reaaallly stupid and don't know an avi when they see one (dunno if that was 'fixed' in avidemux or not).
If that happens you'll have to resort to mencoder and put DX50 somewhere into the line.

crashmeister is right.

If avidemux hasn't fixed it yet, you can probably do this:
1. Create the file with avidemux. Lets say it is file1.avi
2. Give this command:
Code:
mencoder file1.avi -oac copy -ovc copy -ffourcc DX50 -o file2.avi
2 important notes:
a) The second command (the mencoder one), will be very fast as you will see.
b) I haven't checked this command myself so I don't know the probability of it being perfect.
