kmplayer (at least several generations of ~amd64, not sure about stable)
now has the option of using xinelib, mplayer, or gstreamer.  (You may have
to recompile with the proper USE flags to get that option.)  Here, I've
has poor luck with mplayer, but xine has worked well.  Haven't tried
gstreamer.  mplayer is just too hard to get the right plugins, it seems. 
xinelib "just works" a larger percentage of the time without fiddling with
extra plugins.  YMMV, but I read a similar post from someone else
somewhere, and knew I was having issues with mplayer, and sure enough,
xinelib worked far better for me.  Perhaps mplayer could have been made to
work, but I didn't have to "make" xinelib work at all, it just did, once 
merged (and with kmplayer remerged to use it).
