I'm currently using xine 0.9.11 and it seems to be working fine. I will try 
some other (older) versions of xine before changing the configure check.

I think the height calculation of the video is not completely accurate in 
NormalSize mode (Kaboodle). This produces thin black bars at the left and 
right edge of the video widget.

I really hope you can fix these accelerators. I have tried to fix this bug by 
using QWidget::setFocusProxy(), but unfortunately that didn't work. :(

Nice. :)

It would also be great to use the xine "mms://" capabilities. That would allow 
streaming video (Windows Media) in Konqueror using the embedded video player. 
The only problem is that the VideoPlayObject is only called with "file://" 
URLs, other protocols are handled internally (somehow).

Is it possible to disable this and handle URLs by the xinePlayObject directly?
