Yes they do because they were encoded with sepearte codecs.
audio and video compression is different.

you can install the win32 codecs debian package from marillat with apt-get
(if you add his repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list file - search the web)
or download the all-codecs package from the mplayer home page links
and unpack/install manually
I have mine placed in directory /usr/local/lib/win32
(probably just made the directory manually myself)

it is not available on the default installs of Debian to my knowledge.
