I had the same problem, except there were even some .avi files it wouldnt play. From what I read the problem was with the sound card interface. In order to fix it, go into the options menu and into the sound (or soundcard) submenu. Find the option that allows you to pick which sound card to use, and change it from 'Default' to whatever it is you have. When i did it it was simple since there was only "default' and one other as the possible choices. Sorry if i didnt get the name of the menus or options just perfectly, but I'm using Knoppix right now and dont have VLC on it.
