proprietary w32codecs don't work with Kaffeine

I downloaded the w32codecs with kynaptic from the marillat repository, but it 
still doesn't seem to work. I double checked that all the codecs are placed 
in /usr/lib/win32, Kaffeine's Xine config also says that Xine checks for the 
codecs in that directory, but it still doesn't work.
 
 I used this page to test: http://www.nos.nl/nosjournaal/archief/index.html 
(click "(BB)" to open a windows media stream) I opened the stream, Konqueror 
then asks if I want to play it with Kaffeine, I click yes, then it gives an 
error message saying that there "isn't a plugin to handle this resource".
 
 trailers.apple.com works fine though, so I think that it's only a problem 
with the windows media and real codecs?
