From within Explorer, rightclick on the file. Select "Properties". Select the "Details" tab. You'll see information about, among other things, the video and audio codecs used to create the video.

Well...
If your AVI has MP3 Audio Format U would get sound because the
MP3 Decompressor comes with the mplayer.
There is a possibility that u have AC-3 sound in your movie.
If u do u have to download the AC-3 Filters from the below link and run the exe file

http://www.xs4all.nl/~merlinx/software/ac3.zip

hope it works

Yes but have u configured your sound?
If not u have to.
My Mplayer doesn't play DivX with AC-3 Sound either
I use PowerDivX 3.07 for my DivX/AC-3 Playback
Download it it's freeware

Thumbs down

i tried with powerdivx 3.12. i did not find 3.07. but my avi still does not plays with sound. in the propreties tab is still unknown format at sound. and i have installed ac3 codecs. there has to be a way for that sound... but as i said in mplayer the sound volume is active !?! if my sound does not work, if i decompress the sound from my avi file in a huge (uncompressed) wav will i hear anything ???

Thanks for help !
