WMV file plays video but no audio in Lucid


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.

Mplayer tells me
Fatal error!
Error opening initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.

VLC says
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
and also
sudo apt-get install w32codecs


Your generous assistance with this vexacious problem is appreciated.
Thank you kindly.

Mplayer either can't find the codecs where it is looking for them or you aren't using the correct video output device.
Code:
mplayer -vo help
will give you some video out device options.

looks like you don't have the win32 codecs installed in the correct place.

The codecs have to be installed first I think. You may want to uninstall mplayer and use mplayers packages and codecs if your repo isn't making things work for you.

Good luck. Mplayer works well when installed correctly.
