I have problems with .mkv videos. It plays the video OK but every time I try to forward it it doesn't get the place where I want but half an hour earlier - if you know what I mean. So I want to forward it to 1:15 and it takes me to 0:45 in the video. Works good with .avis though.

I've deb-multimedia in my repos since ham or so. That was always the first repo I added to the sources.list. for libdvdcss, w32codecs and much more.
Debian unstable (sid)
VLC's latest packaged version is always in the official Debian unstable branch. However you should still use our apt-get line if you need libdvdcss:
deb http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/debian sid main
deb-src http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/debian sid main
For a normal install, do:
# apt-get update
# apt-get install vlc libdvdcss2
