More Info:

 Video player plugin for Konqueror using MPlayer,
Xine or GStreamer. Like MPlayer, the Xine and
GStreamer backend are out-of-process players. So
it will not crash konqueror when Xine or GStreamer
Also a simple tool for video playing and
recording. Supports many playlist formats,
including PLS, M3U, ASX, SMIL and podcast
RSS/Atom, plays all links directly from the
internet. Other specialties are DVD, VCD and VDR

 Changes since version 0.9.2-rc1
- Added a DCOP call 'isPlaying()' that returns
true when backend is running  and a DCOP call
'isPlaying()' on the backends, other than MPlayer,
that  returns true when not paused
- Fix having to press 'pause' twice for unpause
and pausing not working with playlists (likely
regression since 0.9.2-pre1)
- Compile fix for when not using Xine (regression
in 0.9.2-rc1)
- Crash fix when restarting certain SMIL files, eg
when having an RealPix img

Compared to the 0.9.1 series, the differences are
RealPix image format support, updated gstreamer
backend from 0.8 to the latest stable 0.10
version, a recorder that uses the Xine's mrl
extension which, unlike the others, shows video
while recording and a central timing registration
that allows more accurate SMIL animations which
allow enables animation to pause (including
running gif/realpix animations and/or videos).

0.9.x versions are the begin of playlist support,
but trying very hard not to dublicate the ones
found in the audio players and kaffeine. Current
idea is using a subset of SMIL as a document
format. This means no list of playable entries,
but more like a presentation.
I'm open for ideas for a good editor :-).
