I am trying to render a video (that is not a .dvd file) with audio using Blender. So far, I haven't had any success; all of my rendered clips have had the audio missing from the playback. I've tried a couple of different encoding and output options but nothing has worked so far (except for a .dvd file that I rendered originally).

What are my options for rendering a video with working audio?

    $\begingroup$ Can you please elaborate? How did you add audio to your scene? Which audio codec did you tried, in conjunction with which video codec? $\endgroup$ – Polosson Dec 22 '14 at 20:30
  • $\begingroup$ In addition to what was already asked by Polosson, which player do you use? Have you tried VLC (videolan.org/vlc) it would probably best to add a screenshot with all settings. $\endgroup$ – stacker Dec 22 '14 at 21:30
  • $\begingroup$ @Polosson So the audio was included with the video clips that I imported into Blender. I didn't import the audio separately from the video. Here is a link to some screencaps displaying some of the output/encoding options I tried out (it goes to a deviantart page; just an fyi): sta.sh/0pb1dwup78 $\endgroup$ – AAC Dec 22 '14 at 21:47
  • $\begingroup$ OK, but... where did you import that video? in the VSE? in the MCE? as a input node in the compositor? as a background animation in the 3D viewport? Please tell us more about your setup, and add some screenshots if you can. $\endgroup$ – Polosson Dec 22 '14 at 21:50
  • $\begingroup$ @Polosson I imported the video using the VSE. As for my setup, I'm not entirely sure what sort of information you need (I'm new to Blender and new to video editing so I'm not sure what kind of information is needed). As to why I'm using Blender for video editing...It's free. $\endgroup$ – AAC Dec 22 '14 at 22:11

Open a Properties Pane.
Scroll down until you see the "Encoding" dropdown tab.
You'll see Audio Codecs. If "None" is selected, there will be no audio.
Here is an example.
