Have you tried setting your Konqueror config to use mplayer as a helper app
rather than kmplayer? I recall having some problems with kmplayer, so I
I am going to try kmplayer-plugin although I don't seem to have problems
getting Konqueror to play most media. I think there is a newer version of
the unofficial kmplayer-plugin package for Xandros:
slider:/etc/apt# apt-cache show kmplayer-plugin
Depends: kmplayer-lib (= 0.8.4-1zzupp)
Description: KMPlayer plugin for khtml/konqueror
This plugin enables audio/video playback inside konqueror, such as
movie trailers, web tv or radio.

Have you run updatedb (as root of course) recently?
