MPlayer unable to find appropriate audio codec for avi file

XMMS can play .mp3 and .ogg files just fine, so I'm not exactly sure what other audio codecs I need, or where I can find them. I downloaded the all codec binaries from the mplayer website, and still nothing. Here's the error I receive:
AVI file format detected.
VIDEO:  [DIV3]  640x360  24bpp  25.000 fps  925.1 kbps (112.9 kbyte/s)

MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: decode_audio
- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
  Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and
  disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash.
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
  It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
  gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
  DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
  won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.
alsa-uninit: pcm closed
It only happens with these files (DVD-rip of Stargate Season 2), and they work fine for the friend who ripped them for me. I'm not exactly sure what to do, so any help would be appreciated.

where does it say it's unable to find a codec... it's clearly crashing on the file... you have there in the message a number of steps to take, i'd suggest you did them.
