 It's legal in avi. And vlc should play it. But here there is a strange 
header for audio and with the fact that all audio datas are in one big 
chunk, theses make avi demux a little crazy. I known how to fix video 
playing (ie without sound) but I don't known yet how I will make avi 
demux happier with audio stream. I will search :)
