Frugalware 0.7 updated daily via pacman -Syu

Trying to play some .mp4 files.

If I use vlc I cannot hear any sound and get following message:
"[00000320] main decoder error: no suitable decoder module for fourcc `mp4a'.
VLC probably does not support this sound or video format."

If I use gmplayer I can hear sound but I don't get any image
this is what I get:
"VIDEO: [avc1] 704x384 24bpp 29.970 fps 0.0 kbps ( 0.0 kbyte/s)
open: No such file or directory
[MGA] Couldn't open: /dev/mga_vid"

It works Ok with mplayer.

bash-3.2# pacman-g2 -Q vlc
vlc 0.8.6-7
bash-3.2# pacman-g2 -Q mplayer
mplayer 1.0rc2-1
