> mplayer should be able to play these with the -playlist switch. kmplayer would need to do some parsing/guessing itself to call mplayer with that parameter. I cannot test it right now, but I think it should be able to do that - at least the kmplayer-kpart usually works quite well on embedded real media in konqueror.
Then which things do i click on, or what strings do
i add? i found the "almanac" site, click on "use
KMplayer", and after several seconds of fumbling,
kmplayer simply hung up. it stopped.
Otherwise [k]mplayer works on any ttype of args.
