A few questions that may help paint a clearer picture to help solving this:

What type of audio stream is in the video files? MP3/OGG/AC/???

Have you tried video files with other audio formats? If so, did you get
the same results?
Have you successfully played audio-only files in the same format?

What is your audio setup? (OK, It's ALSA, but what H/W, etc.)

Good luck!
