Client gave me 2 AVIs to make DVDs of.
One burned fine.
The other, whether directly dragging the AVI into Encore, or making an MPEG2 in AME, the DVD video is fine, but the audio plays verrrrry slow.
What's the problem? Thanks in advance.
And, some links...

Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... a screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing

Hi Stan and John-
MediaInfo says audio is MP3 (with MPEG-4 Xvid video). But the other AVI I was given is the same codecs, and audio comes out fine in DVD...
But if I'm re-encoding in AME, does it matter what codec the audio coming in is?
Also, in AME when making an MPEG-2, I've tried both WAVE and MPEG (.mpa) audio- they both play slow.
I'm on CS5, Mac OS 10.6.8
Xvid/Divx are output files, not meant to be edited (variations of the MPEG4 codec, often used for Internet streaming video) so, they mostly do NOT edit well (if at all) in any flavor of Premiere
To edit a divx/xvid file, or convert to a format that will edit in Premiere
I recommend the conversion method, and that should take care of the Audio issue.
I am surprised that the Xvid Imported at all. When they do, one usually gets just Audio (most common), just Video, or totally OOS (Out Of Sync) Audio.
As John T. points out, both Xvid and DivX (the commercial equivilent) are delivery-only formats/CODEC's, and are heavily compressed. The conversion will do nothing to restore the lost quality, but should get you to authoring.
Now, the newer Xvid seems to use the H.264 CODEC for Video, and as you are on a Mac, I would think that you could convert the files to MOV, or MP4. On the PC, I use an older shareware conversion program, but know that Apple's QT Pro can do some conversions too. I just do not know if it can access Xvid/DivX, on either a Mac, or PC. There are probably tons of good conversion programs for the Mac, but as I am a PC-only guy, do not know them.
