Hi, hope you can help. An avi film I could only view after downloading Perian has no sound after burning. Someone said that Perian was relevant to why the finished DVD has no sound. Can anyone tell me if that's true at all?

you need to either transcode it to a higher quality format. like mpeg-2, h.264 etc
An avi movie is a compressed movie file format, usually Divx or Xvid. This is the same principal as taking a normal Audio CD (AT 44.1Khz) uncompressed- and transcoding it to an MP3 that is compressed containing a lot less info depending on the quality of the encoder/settings

To be play an non Divx dvd player, the file must be converted to a larger file format, as this is the industry standard. then burned to a dvd in i dvd
your just not giving the dvd player enough info

I think that there should be have been some issues with the transcoding in this case, though I'm less of a technical guy regarding this but as mentioned earlier the problem seems to be with the insufficient information and buring it in the same manner has resulted in ending up without the audio.
