For decoding: ffdec_mpeg4 (i.e. install gst-ffmpeg) or xviddec (gst-plugins-bad)
For encoding: xvidenc (i.e. gst-plugins-bad) or ffenc_mpeg4 (gst-ffmpeg)

I'd recommend FFmpeg for decoding and XviD for encoding. You will need
to specify settings appropriately to be compliant with the MPEG-4 Part
2 Simple Profile restrictions though.
