I've got some videos in AVI format that I'm trying to convert to MP4 for my Droid. I've installed Avidemux on Fedora 12. I've converted using multiple audio formats, but when I try to play them on the Droid, there's no audio. I can play the same video on my PC and there is audio, so I know the track is there. I've reviewed multiple tutorial sites, and tried what they ask, but ... I ... fail.
You might install the "mediainfo" package so you can examine what codec, bitrate, sample format is used in a good droid compatible video. Then use that as the target. Consider learning to do this is ffmpeg or mencoder. Once you have the details worked out on what the android expects and how to produce it, the input isn't important. You can create a onliner such as "vid2android" which simply takes the source file as an argument and produces a video for the droid.
OK, so more research resulted in finding out I was missing the sac audio codec (libfaac). I also found that it's licensing has caused it to be removed from many repos. One post said it remains part of the package 'faac' at rpmfusion, which I've dl'd. Now to figure out how to get avidemux to recognize it.
Ffmpeg is another option I've used for other conversions, and might have to resort to it for this too.
I use an android app called MX player. Some people called the equivalent of VLC because It supports many video formats including AVI files.
Most of my videos are MP4, but I have some AVI files and MX player played them just fine including the audio. If you want to try MX player, you will need to install MX player and the MX player codec pack. Both are FREE from google play store.
