Making an AVI file from two streams

I'm trying to use AVISaveV() function to assemble of just written video stream (into some temporary AVI) and external audio (PCM WAV) file.
All goes well when the video stream isn't compressed. I even can create a compressed video in the target AVI using compression options in AVISaveV().
But it takes too large temporary AVI file. I'd like to create a compressed video stream "on-the-fly". And I can do that! But the error occures just when I call AVISaveV with such compressed video stream on input.
What is my mistake? MSDN says nothing about AVISaveV() sources!

Oops...
I saw that page!
I haven't any information there about what is the problem in compressed stream writing by AVISaveV() function.
It only says "do not compress twise" But I ofcourse know that even without MSDN :)
I'm compressing only once, but I just wish to compress "on-the-fly"!
And how to use in practice AVIMakeFileFromStreams() function? Can I save the file onto disk with it?

Maybe using AVIStreamGetFrame to get bitmap with later use of ICCompress and AVIStreamWrite for each stream will help?
