Basically, use the fourcc codec website to know the correct code for your video. Then use the CV_FOURCC('','','','') functionality to add the correct codec.

In your case, looking at an AVI file format, most likely you will have a mpeg4 or mpeg5 codec.

I do not know which integer values are behind all fourcc codes. That is why people just use the CV_FOURCC function, since it internally knows all the codes.
