    I'm running MP 1.4 on a Windows 7 machine. For some reason it won't play the audio on MP4 videos which have an MPEG AAC audio track. Any ideas for how I can enable playback of this sort of audio track?

    I already have it set to LAV decoder. I tried all of the other options in the dropdown (Divx, Microsoft DTV-DVD, Monogram, MPC and SageTV) and none of those will play the audio either.

    It seems that the audio problem isn't just with AAC - other videos are also not playing (and I'm pretty sure they did before). Eg. one of the other videos has an audio track using the MPGA codec, and that won't play either. Only one or two files will render audio. All of these play fine with the standard Windows Media Center application however, so there's definitely no problem with the hardware/sound drivers.

    ???

    Update: I spotted the problem. I just opened the Windows audio mixer and noticed the MP component there, which was muted!
