 What are you trying to achieve?

 alac is a proprietary (in the sense of "published by a company, not by a
 standard committee or similar") audio codec that can only be read by a
 limited number of software (either QuickTime- or FFmpeg-based). FFmpeg
 supports muxing alac in mov and caf. (avi could possibly be supported, but
 how would you read the resulting file?)
 Transport Streams are not general-purpose containers (like avi), but allow
 only a very limited set of codecs, see
