Thanks for the replies,

Unfortunately I have wasted your time to some degree...

It turns out it some .avi files recorded from a personal video camera are
the only files that the Internal player fails playing the audio for.
I was using these .avi files for testing as I figured if they work in vlc
they should work using the Internal player.
I tried it on some other .avi and mp4 files and they played perfectly (with
audio) using the Internal player.

Having said that, I would like to be able to use MythVideo to play these
.avi personal recordings.  I gather that the Internal player is probably
missing a codec?  How would I go about getting the Internal player to play
the audio on these files.
