No, I was using Kaffeine which also uses the xine backend 
(and its better picture quality).

I see my original post ended up looking like just a moan 
when that wasn't my intention. (best laid plans...)

I chose Kubuntu because it has an easy set up for VMware and 
a couple of similar products which I hope to get installed 
and set up to run BSD. Like I said I really like many 
things about FreeBSD, like it is just so much better 
organised than the Linux I've previously used. I just 
wanted to get 'my'  basic requirements established first 
which has usually been trivial to achieve, but 
unfortunately got no further.
