OK I have Cold Mountain as an AVI file; its a DVDRip xVid file. When i open it with quicktime, i get the following: "Some necessary quicktime software is missing..." The video play perfectly fine in Quicktime, but I get no sound. I've had avi files of movies work fine before, this is the first one ive had problems with. When I go to the website that it suggests, it just has a list of different plugins to download. Do i need one of these or is it a problem with my file? Here is the link they give me http://www.apple.com/quicktime/resources/components.html

thanks thelox, no if that works, how do i know if it will burn with sound? I tried burning the AVI already, but it also came out with no sound. But i havent tried vlc player to watch it. If that works will it burn with sound?

try getting wmp X if you dont have it, that normally solves my problem with some random XviD or DivX not playing sound, silly people encode with wmp codecs.

what is WMP X? windows media player? If so, I have Windows media player 9 for mac os x and this is what it gives me: "Cannot play back the file. The file format is invalid."

that is strange.. try it with the vlc.. see what that does..

you can get some RW blank dvds and see if its going to burn correctly

or you could try ffmpegx which i believe should convert from AVI to mpeg.

there are tutorials on there to help with conversion

Unzip it and drop "AC3 codec.component" in Macintosh HD/Library/QuickTime
