Dragonplayer built into what? I never hear of it before.

zypper in dragonplayer wanted to install 36 packages.

I was only trying Kaffeine because I thought a KDE native would most likely 
be next best thing to VLC.

zypper in smplayer only wanted to install 13 packages, so I removed 
everything installed explicitly for kaffeine, then installed smplayer. It 
seems good as VLC ever was. Thanks!
