VLC Player Cannot Open Encoder

#1
Hi, I've been trying to convert some .avi movie files to mp4 ones so I can put them on my iPod nano. I use VLC Player to do this all the time and now the app says it can't open the encoded after I've gone thought the process of selecting what to encode the file to. I click "Finish," and a new window opens saying it can't open the encoder. I click on "Show Details" and I get the following:

What is going on here?? I've got no idea what this code means. Help please!!
 
#3
Thanks for the reply. I have handbrake and use it to rip my dvd's. I've tried to use handbrake, but when I select an avi file, it says "No Valid Title Found" next to the "Source" at the top of the window. How do I fix this?
 
#6
Could be, there's really no telling. Do the AVI files play without error in either Quicktime or VLC? Does the error only show up when you're exporting the files?
