Audio okay with ".divx" but disappears if renamed to ".AVI"
I'm running a brand-new Windows 7 64-bit machine with a brand-new DivX Pro installation does download a couple of days ago. If I create a file using home theater profile and regular MP3 audio using TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress I get a my_video.DivX file that plays just fine under Windows media player on Windows 7 64-bit. If I rename that file so that the extension is ".avi" and try to play it I get no audio. If I play the exact same renamed ".avi" file on my old Windows XP system it plays just fine with audio and video both.
I realize you guys want to protect your brand that I've always been able to use ".AVI" extensions on your files in the past. I don't know if this is a codec problem or a Windows media player problem or what it is. But it's going to be a hassle.
Is this a bug or a "feature"?
