Programmatically encode image to AVI/MPG

I'm working on a project that needs to programmatically take a series of image files and encode them, with background audio, into a video (esentially creating a slideshow). The image and output video formats are flexible, though the video will ultimately be converted to divx. Any suggestions on how to approach this, or third-party controls, are appreciated.

Ok for AVI/MPEG2/4/DivX, but these libraries must be registered, or they stop working after 30 days. There are 5 *very* good samples but no sound embedding.
