Popular choices are FLAC and WavPack, with the former being more supported and the latter compressing slightly better (quite similar to HuffYUV and Lagarith, respectively). Neither AVI nor MP4 have native support for these formats, so you'll have to use a superior container to be able to use either of these (i.e. Matroska). The MP4 standard defines a lossless codec, but absolutely no one uses that and support for it is poor on both the encoding and decoding side.
Vorbis and AAC can be considered the best lossy audio codecs. They're quite equal in quality, although Vorbis seems to have a slight edge at high bitrates (> 128kbps) and AAC at lower bitrates (< 128 kbps).
