playing rmvb files in kubuntu with kaffeine?

i've installed the win32 codecs from medibuntu repository, and also downloaded the "essential 20071007" codecs from mplayer website and put them in /usr/lib/codecs but still i can't play rmvb files with kaffeine what can i do? i also installed the frontend kmplayer for mplayer and it doesn't work for some reason, when i play the file with mplayer from terminal it actually plays it so i guess is some kmplayer error, because it doesn't play anything.

by the way this is the output from kmplayer trying to play a file running from terminal:
miguel@Stigmata-desktop:~$ kmplayer
QInotifyFileSystemWatcherEngine::addPaths: inotify_add_watch failed: No such file or directory
QFileSystemWatcher: failed to add paths: /home/miguel/.config/ibus/bus
Bus:pen: Can not get ibus-daemon's address.
IBusInputContext::createInputContext: no connection to ibus-daemon
mplayer -wid 58731266 -slave -vo xv,sdl,x11 -ao alsa,oss,sdl,arts -framedrop -contrast 0 -brightness 0 -hue 0 -saturation 0 /home/miguel/VĂ*deos/MOVIES/The New Guy.avi -identify

and all i get is a black screen, it doesn't play anything.
