The reason why quicktime plays while vlc doesn't is because with the mirroring kext (in 10.6) hardware acceleration isn't supported. You can either disable mirroring with that monitor (extended mode) and then remove the mirroring kext or you can change vlc's preferences so it doesn't try to use hardware acceleration.
The mirroring kext won't be included with NBI for too long. Odds are 0.8.3 or 0.8.4 will be the last version with it included.
