I can play a video on XP, but there's no audio in Lucid. The hardware is a Lenovo SL400, 2GB RAM, 7200rpm drive w/ 36GB free, and an Intel T5870 Core 2 Duo 2GHz CPU.
Media player and Banshee fails to play the video with the error message
No packages with the requested plugins found
The requested plugins are
Windows Media Audio 9
Avidemux crashes when I try to open the 6.3GB file, which I can play with audio AOK in XP.

No suitable decoder module:
VLC does not support the audio or video format "wmap". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.
Mediabuntu is installed in Sofware Sources. I uninstalled it, then reinstalled it. I also disabled, then reenabled, 'Software restricted by copyright or legal issues (multiverse)'; no joy. Also uninstalled then reinstalled Mplayer and Smplayer, to no avail.
Did both repository install as per https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Me...e%20Repository
sudo apt-get install w32codecs
Your generous assistance with this vexacious problem is appreciated.
Thank you kindly.
