ffmpeg avi flv standard codec

Last Modified: 2013-12-07
I am recording my screen and want it to convert it to FLV through ffmpeg.
It does not work when I am using Microsoft Video1 : it gives me an Fatal error, but works with some other codecs like CinePak, ffdshow
Trouble is I DO NOT KNOW WHAT arte the standrd codecs installed on window XP.

My question is: WHAT STANDARD WINDOWS codec should I use to get the AVI so I can then convert it to an FLV ?
Cinepak seems to be a standard codec but gives poor results :(
