Just thought I would bump this...

I have spent ages searching for a solution to this and so far have not
found one. These videos play fine inside the mythweb player, but if
you download them from mythtv onto a windows PC, they play without any
audio, I have tried VLC, Windows Media PLayer, DIVX player. As a last
resort, I just tried XBMC and they do play with xbmc so there is audio
there. How can I get the audio to play in VLC or Windows Media Player?

This is a mythTV setup for a primary school and the idea was that they
could play the content from mythweb in the classrooms. Most of the
items they wish to record come from abc1.
