Maybe you could post a link to your sample that doesn’t work, and confirm you have the Studio version!

AVC video with MP3 audio is not a legitimate format in AVI or MP4 container, for future use change your audio setting to use AAC. It looks like you're using a screen recorder people used a few hundred years ago, if it doesn't have an option for using AAC audio can try OBS or the screen recorders made by your GPU manufacturer.

Here is a link to a list of supported codecs in Resolve:

AVI is generally a format that sends me running screaming from the room. I just use a 3rd-party program to convert it to something we can use for post.

Well said. Even Microsoft tried to replace it (with limited success).
Now that the cat #19 is out of the bag, test it as much as you can and use the subforum.

Wouldn't this be the digital equivalent of asking your VCR to play 16 mm film? :roll:

ROFL.

So, not to sound too arrogant, we can still try to help if you post a short sample to a cloud service.

Quite so, when we all know that VCR's are suitable only for making toast, right?
Right?

Either that or I have a capacitor fire... :D

Use ffmpeg to rewrap it to an MKV or MOV file converting the audio to PCM in the process. Google is your friend.

Or Shutter Encoder if you don't like command lines.
