no sound in DIVX movie

    I'm at my wits end at the moment...I downloaded two avi files recently, and despite my best efforts, I can't manage to get the sound to play on them.

    I had 3.11, 4.12, and 5.02 codecs installed originally. I got an error that Windows Media Player 2 couldn't download the correct codec, media player 8 didn't play the sound, and neither did The Playa or Divx Player 2.0.

    So I reinstalled them all, but it still didn't work.

    I downloaded the nimo pack and installed all of the audio codecs there, but once again came up with a blank.

    I'm running xp with a SB live! value card

    can anyone help me???? I'm desperate for answers here.

    Is there some way I can ascertain how it's been encoded so that I can find the correct codecs to play it? Is there some magical codec that will bring light to my life? Any information, no matter how irrelevant, may help me!

    me = idiot

    several seconds after making that post, it seems that I've fixed the problem myself

    some of the bits of the audio codec from the nimo thing weren't actualyl under the heading of audio, so I skipped over them

    but all is good now

    ignore me

    Problem solve

    if you are gettin no audio out of your divx movies, you need AC3 codec( its addon audio) just install that and you be fine.
