I am running Linux Mint 8. I try playing a video file. It plays but there is no audio and the ,movie player acts as if there was. How can I correct this? Thanx!

I got to the part where I'm supposed to partition Mint. I've got a 500GB hard drive, and I thought I'd give 300GB to LM--but I'm unclear about using ext2, 3 or 4. What about the swap file? Is that automatic?

I have this one AVI file legally downloaded from Veoh, which, however, I cannot playback. If I try to play it back under Totem 2.26.5, (GStreamer 0.10.25), I can see the video, I get no obvious error messages, but I get no sound no matter what I set the volume to: other files I get sound.
Under Properties, I see for the Audio codec: Dolby Digital (AC-3).
Im pretty new to Linux, but I know enough to run only Linux mint 8. (I hate windows)
But I just noticed yesterday, I have a 64 bit processor, and Im running 32 bit version.
The website says that its less stable (The 64 bit), but is it really worse? I find that my processor gets bogged down very easy in my 32 bit. (No freezes though, I love linux:) )
