    Anything free or relatively cheap? A lot of stuff comes up on search, so I thought I'd get advice.

    I have the problem with MPEG Streamclip that I oftentimes don't get the audio from an AVI file.
    I use Flip4Mac as a Compressor plugin. Has solved the problem.

    Jack, if you don't wanna spend 100+ dollars for Flip/Compressor, there's a multitude of transcoders on the web. They mostly cost around thirty to forty bucks. Google for AVI to Mac.
    But still download MPEG Streamclip. It's an absolutely versatile tool. Don't foget to install Perian before.

    I saw those, I don't mind paying for software but I was hoping to avoid spending that much for this one task.

    I don't know how deep you are into editing, and if you do it for a dime, but Flip4Mac as an addition to Compressor is a good investment if you have to deal with the dark side often.

    ...but try Streamclip first, before you sink any money.
