Hi Jim,

Kaffeine has the ability to use different player engines (kparts plugins). The 
default one, and at that time the only one really useable, is based on xine 
and called "Kaffeine".
Go to "Menu->Configuration->Player engine" and select "Kaffeine".
If it's not there, you have an install problem ( make sure libkaffeinepart.so 
is installed in kde libs dir/subdir, e.g: /usr/kde/lib/kde3 )

Kaffeine support is on kaffeine-user ml.
