    Question problems with burning .avi ac3
    So I have a movie that is .avi and uses ac3 for sound. I have the ac3 component in my quicktime folder. It plays fine with sounds in quicktime and divx, but no sound when it plays in idvd. Im guessing this means that if I burn it using idvd it will not have sound, which is what I am trying to do. Any solution would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi, these are the codecs I have and where they are on my HD:

    Macintosh HD>Library>Audio>Plug-Ins>Components>A52Codec.component
    Macintosh HD>Library>QuickTime>AC3MovieImport.component
    Macintosh HD>Library>QuickTime>AppleIntermediateCodec.compon ent
    Macintosh HD>Library>QuickTime>Flip4Mac WMV Export.component
    Macintosh HD>Library>QuickTime>Flip4Mac WMV Import.component
    Macintosh HD>Library>QuickTime>Perian.component

    My User Account>Library>QuickTime>3ivx D4 4.5.1 of OSX

    I don't have any problems with .avi files.

    The issue is not AVI, but the AC3 component. You best bet is to let Quicktime convert it to another format, like MOV and then import it to iDVD.

    Do you need QuickTime Pro to convert to .mov?
