[KPhotoAlbum] Unable to play video under Ubuntu/Feisty

OK, I've finally managed to make it work. But the thing is I don't really
know what made it ok since I apt-get install(ed) and remov(ed) each package
once or twice each to test many different configs :-).

My thumbnails are ok, I finally installed mplayerthumbs as you adviced (I
used the debian package provided as a link in the comments. Yes, maybe quite

However, I'm not totally happy yet. I'm using gnome, so please excuse me if
I say stupid things, just let me know :). I have a very poor knowledge about
window manager architecture like kde or gnome, but if you have time to do
it, do not hesitate to explain things related to what I ask, I'm very
curious :).

So, first question : As my defaults video reader, I use totem. I cannot use
it under KPA, do you think there would be a way to permit it? From my
understanding, it would need to write something to make it embeddable under
kde (a kpart, right?). Is it something difficult to do? Isn't it already
possible. At the moment, I'm using kmplayer with KPA, and totem outside

Second question : a small program comes with totem, which is called
"totem-video-thumbnailer". For me, the best would be to be able to use. I
wouldn't be forced to install additional packages. I guess it would also
help gnome users to use kpa, as there would decrease needed dependencies (as
totem is the default gnome video player). What would be needed to enable kpa
to use it? I guess it's again a matter of kde configuration, right?

Thanks a lot.
