Huh?  Both JuK and amaroK have backends for GStreamer.  There are a handful of 
KDE apps using the Xine framework directly.  We have a few frontends to 
MPlayer.  (I'm not specifically advocating these here -- just noting their 
presense.)  This of course doesn't count the dozens of non-KDE applications 
using all of the above.

Of course this should probably be happening on kde-multimedia.
