Windows media does not give audio on some avi files.vlc and nero players are fine . how /why is there a diffrence?Is it a codec problem if so can a different codec be copied into the windows media player...

This is due to the configuration of your AC3 filter or the absense of AC3 filter. VLC media player has these built in but for Windows Media player/Media centre you need to install & correctly configure the codec. Google KL codec pack & install the full version. Take all the default options, re-boot & all your audio will play through Windows Media player & media centre. KL codec pack also contains many other useful tools & codecs & nothing that will harm your PC. Don't forget to rate me.
