The code you're looking for can be found at http://members.optusnet.com.au/squid_80/sources/Specifically the xvid_encraw_src.zip contains the matroska writing source code and AviWriter_src.zip contains source code (taken from virtualdub) for an AVI writing library designed to be a drop-in replacement for AVIFile that can handle >2GB output.
