Included in a popular video "codec pack" are bad "audio-switcher" codecs that are not compatible with WMP and maybe others. The solution, which simply involves installing the real codecs and then uninstalling them, thereby taking the bad ones with them, is at http://www.morgan-multimedia.com/codecpacks.htm .
