Fedora 17 video playback problem

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I've installed VLC and smplayer, and audio plays fine but video is slowed down and jerky. This is happening with all forms of video (avi, mkv) and in all video players. Is there something additional I need to install? I figured vlc and smplayer would install the required files. (HowTos)
