I was going to say that it hasn't been compiled with libxvid support but I 
just checked my install which has definitely been compiled with 
--enable-libxvid but that doesn't show a use flag in --version either so 
that doesn't help much sorry. Is your install compiled from source with the 
--enable-libxvid switch or is it installed from package?

Have you tried mythffmpeg / mythffprobe instead of ffmpeg / ffprobe to 
analyse the files instead?
