Not all programs say the codec is missing. Mplayer reports audio codec
0x56444152 is missing.
vlc and gnome media player seem to run something but you don't see of
hear anything.
xine and Movie player can't recognise the format.

vlc is specifically supposed to work on .avi files , so I am msytified.
