I really don't care for the mplayer/gtk look in KDE, so I installed kmplayer (seems kplayer is depreciated). Now I "see" mplayer with both the gtk AND the kmplayer look. I thought about toying around with gtk-qt-engine, while having read your howto, seems a little too "kloodgy" for something as small as appearance to worry about at this stage of the game.
I went with Chromium, when I installed it there were aslo two plugin pakcges:
chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-nonfree - Non-free ffmpeg codecs for the Chromium Browser
chromium-codecs-ffmpeg - Free ffmpeg codecs for the Chromium Browser
This package contains the multi-threaded ffmpeg codecs needed for the HTML5
<audio> and <video> tags. In addition to the free ogg, vorbis and theora codecs,
H.264, MP3 and AAC are also included. See chromium-codecs-ffmpeg if you prefer only
the free codecs
