I have some Xvid AVIs with three MP3 audio tracks. Windows Media Player 11 plays all of them simultaneously, can't select just one.
Zoom Player and Media Player Classic will play any one of the three.
Is this a problem with WMP or can I do something to the AVIs to fix them to play correctly in all three players?

WMP is, basically, stupid. It cannot differentiate between multiple audio tracks. It also doesn't read Aspect Ratio flags correctly, doesn't do subtitles, and is, like quicktime, a basic player for beginners to get them started.
If you want flexibility and reliability, try a better player. You have already tried two of them, You can also add to the list VLC and The KM Player. All are far better than Windows Media Player.
You may be able to get WMP to do what you want by installing appropriate splitters and codecs, but frankly I have never used WMP enough to care to find out how to make it work properly.Read my blog here.
I've played many AVIs with TWO audio tracks just fine in WMP, with the ability to select which track.
Either WMP can't handle three audio tracks or there's something screwy with the way these AVIs are made. No player I've tried identifies the tracks by language, just as 1, 2 and 3.
Could be the person who made them forgot the language tags? Is there a way to add those without demuxing and remuxing the streams?
That's in the CCCP, right? I have the latest version of that installed.
