We do not support Google Chrome, a proprietary application not shipped by
Fedora. This also has nothing to do with KDE.

We do not officially support VLC either, as it's in RPM Fusion, not in
Fedora itself. This also has very little to do with KDE, unless your issue
is a Qt bug.
In addition, we cannot possibly help you without at least a stack backtrace
of each crash. What you told us is basically just that it crashed (with a
segmentation fault, but that's the most common cause of a crash and doesn't
say anything specific either).
Now if you happen to use the proprietary NVidia driver, you may be seeing:
a known issue, for which the only known workaround is to use Nouveau instead
(something I'd recommend to all owners of NVidia graphics hardware anyway).
But that's just a wild guess (it's the most common segmentation fault crash
hitting more than one application reported against Fedora 16); without a
backtrace, I cannot know more.
