How to find out which (not installed) package a file belongs to?

I usually used avisplit command to split avi files. I noticed that I should install the package transcode.

$ man transcode


       transcode_export(1) , transcode_filter(1) , transcode_import(1) , avifix(1) , avisync(1) , avimerge(1) , avisplit(1) , tcprobe(1) , tcscan(1) ,
       tccat(1) , tcdemux(1) , tcextract(1) , tcdecode(1) , tcmodinfo(1) , tcxmlcheck(1) , transcode(1)

though the command avisplit does not work.

my OS: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Do you know where is the problem?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

What is the output of $PATH? What about type -p avisplit? – Chris Down Nov 13 '12 at 11:56
$PATH is /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games. type -p avisplit shows nothing. – xralf Nov 13 '12 at 12:32
The SEE ALSO section of a man page is NOT a list of what other programs are in the same package or even a depended upon package. All it means is the man pages in SEE ALSO are related in some way. – jw013 Nov 14 '12 at 14:31

This page says that is should be present in the transcode-utils package for your version of ubuntu. However, it seems to be transferred in the transcode package for further releases,as this page shows.
