In-game videos are missing audio in LotR 2. The videos are playing silently.
Other in-game sounds (stored in .wav files) are playing correctly. Videos are
encoded with the Smacker codec.

Audio worked correctly during video playback in 1.3.31:

The patch can be reverted on current git (wine-1.3.34-202-gb0f704d), and that
fixed the problem.
This commit is also mentioned in bug #29056, although it causes freezes there.

The demo contains only 2 short videos (bat_los1.smk and bat_win1.smk) which are
playing when you either win or loose a game. To reach to that point in the game
requires several minutes of gameplay, so here I'll give you a different
approach to reproduce the problem with the demo.

1. Unpack and install the demo. Use Wine's full-screen mode for installation,
and do not perform system test when the installer asks for it.
2. Now that the demo is installed you need the RAD Video Tools utility,
including a smacker video player. Download and install RAD Video Tools:
3. Locate the 2 video files in the demo directory (BAT_LOS1.SMK and
BAT_WIN1.SMK) and play either of them by using the smacker player application:
wine smackplw.exe BAT_WIN1.SMK. You can see the videos playing but cannot hear
