avi2swf uses VFW (Video for Windows) to do the file parsing.
It seems that not all codecs are available through that API, so you
get the "missing codec?" message even if the codec really is available.

There are other APIs (DirectShow, Windows Media SDK, ...) avi2swf could
additionally use, but I haven't gotten around to implementing that
yet (and I'm also not sure they'll link against MingW, as at least Windows
Media SDK is C++).

Oops, the documentation is wrong- the scale option is "-s".
