Can't play 10-bit H.264 .mkv videos.

At the moment, I am unable to play the aforementioned videos.
I know for certain mplayer2 supports the 10-bit encode, but whenever I try to play, only a second of audio plays with no video. Instead of video, I get an "Unsupported PixelFormat 72" error. I updated my FFmpeg libraries to 0.8 after that, however nothing has changed and I still get the error. I am currently running Fedora 15. I'd appreciate the help.

Ah, I can play the video perfectly from the terminal. It's SMPlayer that can't play the file. VLC and Totem do not work either.
EDIT: I just found out the problem. SMPlayer was using the mplayer.bin (mplayer1) in the usr/bin directory, but the correct path that had mplayer.bin (mplayer2) was usr/local/bin. Everything works perfectly now. Thank you for your time.
