Windows Media Audio 8 will not play


I've tried the following video in every Linux program imaginable:
mms://webvid.rice.edu/annenberg/Economics_USA_01.wmv

Can anyone play it on their machine? I tried it using aviplay, mplayer, xine and vlc. It will only play when sound is disabled. It plays fine in Windows Media Player with sound. Any ideas?

Here's a sample output from mplayer:
[rsolomon@freedom test]$ mplayer mms://webvid.rice.edu/annenberg/Economics_USA_01.wmv

It worked for me. My version of mplayer is MPlayer 1.0pre5-3.2. You can either recompile mplayer or test your memory for any problems with memtest86.

It Works!!!

mplayer was just using the wrong audio codec. Here's how I fixed it:

mplayer mms://webvid.rice.edu/annenberg/Economics_USA_01.wmv -ac divx

No audio problems now. Ahh, no more going into Windows either.
