No sound when playing .wmv files

I don't know if it plays okay under Windows (I haven't had Windows
installed since 1994. Went from OS/2 Warp to Linux).
It played fine on this machine when it was running Gentoo. I don't see
what that could have to do with it, but my choice of Linux distro is the
only thing that's changed. Same sound card, same software (Xine).
Here's a link to one of the files that is misbehaving.
I've downloaded a fresh copy of it (thinking that I'd somehow corrupted
the old one during the backup I did to install Ubuntu), but it does the
same thing (no audio). Perhaps the file itself will shed some light on
the problem. (BTW, the clip is hilarious). :)
