We are just finding out, what's the best solution, to produce Multilanguage
Videos of Screen Capturing. Using MS Media Encoder 9 we can produce nice and
lossless videos files, at very high compression rates, using the WMV
Screencapturing codec Series 9. As expected the files play well, using
Windows, they don't play at all using Mac OSX. Is it possible to play (and
access the 2 audio streams) these files using mplayer, under Linux?

Here is a testfile (the wmv file):

Thanks a lot in advance for your testing! Perhaps you have some ideas, how
an intelligent choice of codec and container would look like, to play the
files on as many platforms as possible and to use as low proprietary
technology as possible.

Regards Michael.
