i sorry for the cap locks but really need help and in a big rush!

I am creating a movie for this evening! :S and desperately need help!

all the movie clips I am using are either mpeg, wmv, avi and one is mov.

the only one which will play properly with sound is the .mov clip.

now ive tried exporting all other clips to .dv (stream) but once its exported and i drag them into imovie there is no sound! i have tried so many things but nothing is working, someone please give me details on how to clear this up as ive been up till 5 in the morning trying to sort it! :S

Thanks!!

the only thing i can think of is to download a program that will convert the files to a different format (avi or mov) and convert the files.

only one of the clips is .avi and that one doesnt matter too much.

most of them are mpg and ive done everything i was told to do by people to get them to work, exporting them as .dv (stream) but no audio is coming out in imovie or in general once its been converted. im so confused! lol

cheers for helpin guys keep it comin...

Use MpegStreamclip to get the audio out of the mpeg

Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System
