Don't know why I bother really but where ever you post you need to grasp the 
front end bit I mentioned earlier. The other bit that actually does the work 
might be called the back end. As far as I am aware there are only 2 back 
ends. Xine and Mplayer. Maybe Kevin could chime in on that point. Clearly the 
facilities available in the back end limit what can be done in the front end. 
The front end may not even make use of all of the facilities available in the 
back end. Mplayer and it's associated code will do all sorts of things for 
instance. This front end back end arrangement applies to most kde apps even 

On flagship apps. KDE is a DESKTOP that runs apps as is Gnome and a number of 
others. As far as I'm aware Kaffeine is the most fully featured KDE video app 
and is likely to remain so. That's where you should post but if your changes 
fall outside of the pure video features that Xine can provide maybe you need 
to post there as well. Me I long for a fast and slow play facility.
