Playing AVI-files with sound

I want to play AVI-file with sound. In VC 4.1 help in CAnimateCtrl description I read:

Animation controls can play only simple AVI clips.
Specifically, the clips to be played by an animation
control must meet the following requirements:
<skiped>
There can be at most two streams in the file (typically the
other stream, if present, is an audio stream, although the
animation control ignores audio information).
<skiped>

Why animation control ignores audio information? Is this
control property keep in VC 4.2? What can I do to play
AVI-file with sound?

Thanks for all proposition

Good idea!
One notice: I must be sure that there is AVI-files registration
on user PC. Else ShellExecute will return SE_ERR_ASSOCINCOMPLETE
and problem will be not solve.
