what MediaCoder does not do
MediaCoder does not work with DRM'd content. remove the DRM first.
Video Conversion with MediaCoder
it's not simple. there will be a lot of trial and error getting your file conversion to work. and you may uncover some bugs in MediaCoder (like I did). MediaCoder is continually being updated and fixed.
MediaCoder can be an error-prone process, and daunting. MediaCoder is a complicated, not-easy, powerful, and flexible conversion program. but keep trying to do your task. you will get it eventually, and learn some things about mediacoder in the process.

note that the input audio rate is 8000Hz PCM, which is 64kbps. in order to encode without errors, I had to choose 128Kbps.

your mileage may vary!
the settings I listed above were for my Nikon P90 camera's video mode. it uses PCM audio in an AVI file format. you may have a DivX in an AVI file format for some cameras. so your mileage may vary, and you may have a different audio "in" format, so you will need to change the audio source settings.
