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-pre2
- Update with 0.9.1c
- SMIL files can be part of other SMIL files
- y-coordinate fix for images in RealPix

Changes since version 0.9.1b
- WMP's showdisplay object argument interpretation
fix, it's about clip info
- Fix current playlist item not visual selected
and plugin's playlist not showing HTML object's
arguments (regression in 0.9.1b compared to
- Fix KHTML setting palette on controlpanel,
buttons weren't updated
- Double click on video widget for Xine/Gst/Xv or
background toggles fullscreen

Compared with the KMPlayer-0.9.0c version, there
are improvements all over the place. Highlights
are XML export of playlist, shorter and cooler
begin/end animations, position and resizing
tweaks, network bandwidth settings,
playlist/infowindow/statusbar controls for plugin,
audio/subtitles within a stream support, playtime
timer added in statusbar and search feature for
playlist. Of course bug fixes, better support for

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 :-).
