I filed a bug report against kaboodle. Works in a limited way in and 3.5.10, but is broken in R14.

I write "limited way" because I tried an assortment of video file 
types. Seems kaboodle supports only older versions of avi and mpeg. 
Newer versions of those formats don't play. Despite the prevailing 
hatred for flash, flv nonetheless remains popular and kaboodle does 
not support flv.

Somebody familiar with video hopefully can improve kaboodle, 
perhaps grabbing code from kaffeine or kmplayer. We need a more 
robust default video player. kaboodle's interface is very simple 
and that is good for a default player, but kaboodle needs improved 
format support. Not everything under the sun, but some updates.
