KMplayer is just an MPlayer wrapper, IIRC, and MPlayer's man page
still lists arts as an audio output target.  It would probably be useful to
see if this is still viable (run "mplayer -ao arts [file]" from the command
line, and see if adjustment still affects the master volume--I don't use arts, 
and so can't test).  If it works, KMPlayer can be tweaked to offer the 
option if arts is installed.

This gets us no closer to solving the problem of a viable default video
player, though, unless we want to shift KMPlayer into tde-multimedia.
