i find it weird that file lists it as having 6 channel audio but mplayer detected it as only having 2 channels of audio.

Have you tried the vlc player?
Are your apps updated especially mplayer/ffmpeg/vlc/

Mplayer and vlc should be able to play this type of file quite easily if your system has the codecs. You can check by typing:
Code:
mencoder -ovc help

Available codecs:
   copy     - frame copy, without re-encoding. Doesn't work with filters.
   frameno  - special audio-only file for 3-pass encoding, see DOCS.
   raw      - uncompressed video. Use fourcc option to set format explicitly.
   nuv      - nuppel video
   lavc     - libavcodec codecs - best quality!
   libdv    - DV encoding with libdv v0.9.5
   xvid     - XviD encoding
   x264     - H.264 encoding

mencoder -oac help

Available codecs:
   copy     - frame copy, without re-encoding (useful for AC3)
   pcm      - uncompressed PCM audio
   mp3lame  - cbr/abr/vbr MP3 using libmp3lame
   lavc     - FFmpeg audio encoder (MP2, AC3, ...)
   twolame  - Twolame MP2 audio encoder
   faac     - FAAC AAC audio encoder
OR
Code:
ffmpeg -formats | egrep -i 'avi|ac3'
DE ac3             raw AC-3
DE avi             AVI (Audio Video Interleaved)
DE eac3            raw E-AC-3
If you have the codecs in bold, the video should play. If not, the video is either corrupted, DRM protected or was created with some other encoder program with a proprietary codec. Just my guess.


PS: Can you share the download link of this video if known?

Maybe not. Reading all the posts in this thread. The name of the file has painstakingly been hidden from view in all replies from the OP.

Yeah, I know, but I was hoping the OP would reveal it so I can download it myself and see why it is not playing.

[...]
that looks to me like a correct AVI container, including correct stream IDs, but the payload, i.e. the video stream itself is garbled. Maybe someone took a file that is something else, and told VirtualDub to multiplex it into a video file. That could be a new way of sharing potentially offending files without making them too obvious.

Try to change the file format from AVI to MP4, MOV etc. with a trustworthy converter. Hope this will help you to play the file. But if this methods doesn’t work then the last option left with you is to use a repair tool. Use AVI Repair Tool to play your corrupt or damage video file.
