Unfortunately your question provides so little information about your isue it's akin to asking how long a piece of string is. Without a lot more information there is very little anybody can do to help you.

Clearly one of these codecs is now your default DirectShow audio device, the first thing would be to remove all of these if you have no idea how to configure these.

I'm sorry, but you spend not much time explaining the problem, but expect others to spend time helping you?

Also, removed duplicated topic.

probably had one of those packs install an ac3 filter (or literally ac3filter) which is configured to downmix your audio to stereo.

ok well i installed ffdshow, combined community codec pack and real alternative to watch movies in .rmvb file type on my computer. It worked but sound only came out of 3/5 speakers (5.1). I uninstalled all 3 programme and only reinstalled real alternative and the sound is working fine now but when I watch .rmvb movies on MPC its sometimes lags or the programme is really slow. Any solutions?

To be honest the best option is to delete the rmvb files and re-download them in a format that doesn't suck a rats no-no. 

It's very common to find divx/xvid encoded video in an avi container/file or h264/x264 in avi or mkv container/file.

Hell even the Windows Media Video in a WMV container/file has better player support.

Is this content not available in another format?
