No sound when trying to open .avi in Windows Media Player

I am encountering an issue regarding The.Island.TC.XviD.CD1-ASTEROiDS.avi.

No sound is being produced everytime I try to launch the movie and this message appear:

.

Error: The video file you are opening includes audio data that is not recognized by the DivX Player.

The file contains the following type of data:

Audio data: Tag 8192

You may need to install a new audio codec on your computer to listen to the audio. 
 
This notice came from Divx Player, although I originally attempted to start up avi in windows media player 10 with XviD-1.0.3-20122004 and the only thing it say is "error downloading codec" before continuing to play the actual movie without having any sound.
Please help.

Hi,

There this is probably a sound codec problem, .avi is a media container format which can be encoded with many different video and sound codec’s, such as divx, xvid, mjpeg, rle, mp3, ac3, mp2, etc, windows media player just support few special codec avi files well, so once your avi files use incompatible sound codec with windows media player, you will meet this no sound problem, so if you want to play your videos on windows media player, you'd better convert your video to wmv or mpeg video which are the best video formats for windows media player or get the right codec by going to windows and update your windows, use this download to solve this problem you can try the link below:
