The latest version of Handbrake, 0.9.4, has removed all support for .avi containers. If you update, you will no longer be able to export to .avi -- just mkv and mp4. So you may not want to do what I did, and go "oh, sure, go ahead and update."

From their announcement page:
AVI: AVI is a rough beast. It is obsolete. It does not support modern container features like chapters, muxed-in subtitles, variable framerate video, or out of order frame display. Furthermore, HandBrake's AVI muxer is vanilla AVI 1.0 that doesn't even support large files. The code has not been actively maintained since 2005. Keeping it in the library while implementing new features means a very convoluted data pipeline, full of conditionals that make the code more difficult to read and maintain, and make output harder to predict. As such, it is now gone. It is not coming back, and good riddance.
If you're like me, and you export to avi because it's more *cough* universally acceptable than mkv, you may find this less than helpful.

I've tracked down a release of Handbrake 0.9.3 for PC, which I can share with anyone who needs it; it's not available on their site because it's no longer supported.
