    Have you tried to re-install the codec?

    Have you tried a different codec (eg, DIVX 3.11alpha)?

    Have you tried a different encoder?

    Well, I would recommend DIVX 3.11alpha.

    Encoders:

    Vidomi
    Nandub

    I would also recommend DivX3.11 with but not with Xmpeg or Flask. Use GordianKnot with nandub instead. You'll get a better quality.
    About the sound. Try to uninstall and then reinstall Radium. But not anything that comes with a package. Just take the lonely file and install it.

    I would recommend that you process the audio separately using, for example, graphedit or vob2audio (to get .wav audio) and then converting to MP3 track using, for example, LAME. After that, you can just mux the audio together with the video using virtual/nandub.

    Let's take an example where you have finished encoding your video using Flask (or whatever else that suits your taste). You also have got the MP3 audio track of the movie, that you obtained using the above method. Now we will interleave it using nandub (it does not complain about the MP3 track):

    1. Open video in nandub
    2. Set both the video and audio tabs to Direct Stream Copy
    3. Under audio tab, select your MP3 track.
    4. Under the same tab, go to interleave option. In most cases, you really needn't change any of the options, but you will have to look into these if your final interleaved file has audio synch. problem. The settings should be clear enough to you, right?
    5. Save as AVI and give a name to it.

    Be warned that it is preferred that the video and audio have the same play length and, more importantly, framerate. Flask has the ability to parse multi-angle DVDs and hence, the video length may vary from the audio you obtained.

    Just a precautionary warning.

    May I add that you uninstall Radium before trying out LAME. khp previously suggested the same because of some undesirable problems with having these two MP3 codecs installed under the same system.

    I am personally a LAME user and have no Radium codec installed under my system. If it works and gives satisfying quality, I have no need for anything else.
