Multimedia trashed...again

I’m using Kpackagekit since upgrading to 11.4 and let it install all the updates it proposes. It has never broken my system but maybe I’m just lucky.

Best regards,

Further notes on Mplayer.

If I start Mplayer from the CLI then oldcpu’s instruction “mplayer somefile.flv -vo xv” works just fine. But if I try to play it from Konqueror (right click, open with) then it fails unless the /home/user/.mplayer/gui.conf file has the line

vo_driver = “xv”

in it. “xv” works for my setup, perhaps yours needs another driver. I have not figured out what the /home/user/.mplayer/config file (presumably the CLI invoked config) needs to have in it.
