Avi Movie Format Conversion Issue

Question

I have an AVI movie file that I want to convert to a M4V file. The conversion seem to complete but when playing the file there is no audio.

 

When loading the AVI in to Toast I noticed that the AU Filter button is no enabled and also playing the video from within the application produces no sound at all.

 

I have used Elgato Turbo 264 HD application which converts the file without the audio issue. I then used ffmeg to convert the file to mp3 and mov files and both worked without any glitches.

 

So is the an underlaying problem with Toast that affects conversion from AVI or any other files for that matter?

The AVI probably has AC-3 audio which QuickTime can't convert. The solution used to be installing the free perian codec from perian.org. It's been a long time since I checked on that.
