	If you're playing a file with DivX audio (a.k.a., Windows Media
Audio) then you're not going to get any sound out of MPlayer on a PPC
machine. The audio in this case would be handled by a Win32 x86-only
binary module. If the audio is handled by a native MPlayer decoder, then
we have a bug on our hands.

	So which audio format is it?
