I think I'll leave the VLC for the time being on my system.

Thanks everyone involved in the thread.


Is it possible the audio was copyright protected?

If you right click on the AVI file and select "properties" is there any info about the audio?

there is no info in the file properties in relation to audio having copy rights or anything like this. There is just basic info:

Bitrate: 192kb/s
Channels: 2 (stereo)
Samplerate: 48khz

Alas, I do have another issue. All the RMVB video files in VLC are choppy; it's like the movie goes on and then it's 5 seconds choppy and then goes back to normal, and then choppy again.. Every single RMVB gets in VLC like this. Any idea why???

I need an audio player capable of playing multiple audio files simul
In Mac OS Quick time does this (I can have 10 audios all playing simultaneously). WMP nor VLC seem capable of this. I need a solution to this for both Linux/ubuntu and Windows 7. Maybe there's a way to customize vlc or wmp? Thanks.
