heres the encoding movies like antitrust and down to earth. the avi/divx movies seem totally fine when i watch them. when i convert them to vcd compliant format there is no sound at all. im not a newbie, ive been doing this for a while now, but im totally stumped here. im using TMPGEnc12x(got all of the versions). i usually make xvcd but when it had no sound i tried the template and it still had no sound. im pretty stuck here now. can anyone out there help me please? TIA
