Get DivX Doctor 2. Be sure to install the codecs it requires (read the readme).
This will convert the .avi to a Quicktime .mov. Make sure the decompress audio button is checked. Then you can do what you want to the movie.

Or you can buy Cleaner.

One normally says bump when they want to place a thread on top of the list.

cradom, i think i may have fallen in love with you! Do you have any idea how long I have been trying to find a mac app that would convert my Xvids to iDVD compatible movies!! I have posted on about half a dozen forums and no one has suggested DivX Doctor 2.

I have tried it and it works perfectly - and it is so friggin fast! Unlike Cleaner which is good but soooo slow. Up until now I had given up and was re-encoding everything on Windows.

Thanks again for that!

Anytime. Now if I can just find something to convert .rm movie clips to something I can burn to VCD.

Although DivX Doctor works for some of my AVI's, it does not work for them all. Are there any tutorials that I can look up that will give me a step by step process explaining what to do?

yeah. i found DivX Doc didn't accept a couple of my AVIs either. I had to re-encode it on my PC to something DivX Doc would accept on my Mac. Bit of a pain but only had to be done once or twice.
