You can not make your card capture in MPEG. You will have to convert the AVI to an MPEG. The cost can be as low as one hundred dollars for command-line convertors to one thousand dollars or more for GUI convertors. Xing is the one used by a lot of hobbyist to creat MPEGs from AVIs. Xing's convertor can be found at and costs $250.00.

Cinax's WinVCR can give you the ability to encode to mpeg-1 in real time. However, I've heard that it's not very stable and there are still a lot of bugs to work out.
