Some of my AVI files have no sound when played on my Lacie LaCinema media player
This is taken from their FAQ:
Video playback problems
LaCie multimedia hard disks can play back a variety of video formats. While most are supported, partially supported or unsupported video formats can cause odd behavior.
Some video format related problems are:
* Unusual colors
* No video
* No audio
* Crashes when fast-forwarding
* Video not listed in the menu
If any of these behaviors happen, the video needs to be re-encoded. There are serveral free and commercial options to re-encode video. A good resource for tutorials on this subject is http://www.videohelp.com.
The thing is, I have no idea what setting I need to change when reencoding the video. Can anyone help?
I have RiverPast Video Cleaner to reencode files, if that helps.

If that helps, I get these results for a file that actually works:
Codec: 0x0055 MPEG-1 Layer 3
Info: 44100Hz 128 kb/s tot , Joint Stereo
You should be able to do this with avidemux
1) open the video
2) video sidebar set to "copy"
3) audio sidebar set to "MP3 LAME"
4) format sidebar set to "AVI"
5) press save with extension (e.g. "myfile.avi")
All this does is copy the video (so no quality loss in the video), but re-encode the audio to MP3 and place it into an .avi container
That did the trick. Thanks a bunch!
