I got the same issue... the spider filter selects the avifiles 
decoder/encoder(windec) when dealing with avi(mpeg4) encoded files. But 
the windec filter seems to have many troubles decoding such streams, at 
least on my distro(custom build). So I decided to use the ffmpegdec 
filter instead of the windec filter. For that, I switched the registry 
priorities of the windec(256) and ffmpegdec(64) in order to make the 
spider filter select the latter than the first.
