Summary: Wine 1.1.39 package: no mp3 sound in Powerpoint 2003/7
or Windows Media Player 9
Product: openSUSE 11.1
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.1
Priority: P5 - None

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206)

Powerpoint 2003 & 2007 presentations with embedded mp3s have no sound when
using the openSUSE Wine package, but sound plays fine when the same
presentations are run on the same machine using Wine built from git.
Windows Media Player 9 has the same problem: mp3 files will not play at all
using Wine from the openSUSE package, but play fine with Wine built from git.
VLC player can play mp3 files just fine using the openSUSE Wine packages.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Powerpoint 2003 or 2007. (Powerpoint Viewer will probably do.)
2. Using Wine from the openSUSE package, open a presentation with mp3 sound and
run the slideshow.
1.Install WMP9 with winetricks.
2.Using Wine from the openSUSE package, try to play an mp3 file.
Powerpoint will play the slideshow without sound.
WMP9 will throw up an error message "The audio codec identified by the format
tag 55 is required to play this file."
The Powerpoint slideshows should have sound, and WMP9 should be able to play
the mp3. Both work fine when using Wine 1.1.39 built from git.
