Kaffeine is a KDE3 application so its understandable that they want to
replace it in Intrepid with a KDE4 application. But so far there is no
KDE4 media player worth replacing Kaffeine. What i wanted to say with
my first replay to the OP is don't waste time with Dragon Player, use
one that works and works well. Kaffeine is the best choice for me as I
also using it to watch/record DVB.
