uhm, strange, to me it doesn't crash with xine, what happens tough is that i 
only get audio with it, that's annoying but i don't know what it can be done 
about that, i don't know if it's a limitation specific to phonon or if it's a 
thing not possible at all with xine, so having it working with xine could be a 
thing that can happen for 4.4 as well as uuh, never
