It's a wrong/broken pipeline.

 - video/x-msvideo is avidemux's input format, it does not
   output that (see gst-inspect-0.10 avidemux)

 - directdrawsink does not accept 'video/x-msvideo' as input
   either, so even if avidemux did output that, it wouldn't
   work. directdrawsink wants RGB video as input
   (see gst-inspect-0.10 directdrawsink)

Try something like this:

 gst-launch-0.10 filesrc location=... ! decodebin ! ffmpegcolorspace !
videoscale method=1 ! directdrawsink
