Problem solved. I had cairo-dock (with opengl) configured to autostart 
when I logged in KDE. After executing cairo-dock, the xv driver no long 
works in smplayer, kaffeine, gwenview and others until I log out and log 
in again. Removing cairo-dock from autostart has solved the problem.
I will file a bug against cairo-dock.
