    Ok, so when I open .avi files with Quicktime Pro, most of them play fine, but there are a few that have no sound

    BUT

    when i open the soundless ones with VLC, they are just fine...

    could anyone offer an explanation for this?

    thanks

    paul

    The Answer!

    to .avi's with no sound in Quicktime!

    http://trac.cod3r.com/a52codec/

    I've got all the other codecs Apple features; nothing worked.
    VLC works, but you can't edit; exports fail or crash VLC.

    Forget VLC.

    This works.
