I tried to play you AVI file.... with a 48000khz card and I got no sound

The last few  Mplayer releases fixed any sound card issues I had.
Even before the fix, I've always had sound.. It would just play at the wrong 

The fact that you are getting no sound consdering these things suggests a 
recording problem rather than a playback.... 

If I were to guess I would say that the sound feed is not hooked up correctly 
to your computer... or your mixer settings are too low or muted.
