Just look into kde. - xine is used.

Just look into kdemultimedia: They are having a lot of trouble because of the 
xine-lib not beeing BC in its releases.

Perhaps you should contact Neil Stevens and co...

Now it gets off-topic:

For me Xine is like aRts: Some like it, some do not. I like aRts and not Xine, 
its not that beautiful thing you call it. mplayer, ogle and aviplay are my 
favourites. All called with artsdsp before it command;-)
