VLC not playing some audio files

This was my favorite media player because it played all the files I could throw at it. However, in Fedora 12 it fails to run my .avi or .mkv files. I may have forgotten something, like some driver or codec, but movie player plays them well. I have VLC in Mac and it plays the files without question. Am I doing something wrong?

I would enable the RPMFUSION repositories and look for vlc codec plugins.

This may not actually help much, but, just for info...,
On at least 3 different occasions, I've had updates break VLC. One was in a similar manner as yours. But I only had to wait a long while once for it to be fixed. (known bugs) That is when I put TOTEM on. In all fairness, I had TOTEM break once, too but as of yet, I haven't actually had them both at the same time. So (I hope) I'm covered.
