OK, I found how to configure kmplayer properly and it is working now. So, I 
can see videos inside KPA now.    :-)

What I did in kmplayer was:

1) Setting->Configure...->General Options->Output->Video driver->X11Shm
2) Setting->Configure...->Source->URL->Use movie player->Xine   (because 
Mplayer is not available in Debian).

However, it seems there are still two problems:

Every time I use kmplayer from KPA I have to set again Xine as the movie 
player (step 2). Because KPA put it at Mplayer instead of Xine every time 
kmplayer is called.

The other problem is that kaffeine still makes KPA crash on exit and does not 
play video. So, if a user has kaffeine as default player to see embedded 
video, KPA won't play the video and will crash on exit (despite feature 
status says that video support is enabled).
