Bill, depending on what I'm doing with AviDemux (e.g. just playing a file vs. playing it while also re-encoding it) I have had the sound break up while playing in the editor. But after the file is exported and saved, it played fine. Are you getting broken sound in the saved and edited video? Some audio codecs (with variable bit rate) do not live well in some output containers (that are expecting constant bit rate).

These are an example of the quirks I referenced in a prior post that I need to highlight when I get them itemized. There are only a few I've run into, but easily avoided with the right codec choices. The audio codec used in the camera's .MOV container is not a very common one, except maybe for Apple Quicktime files, of which I know very little other than it's their adaption of an MP4 format?)
