Are you starting from the KDE "run command" dialog?
Try running from the commandline and see what kind of output you get.

I do not have a dvd player, but mplayer (and kmplayer and kplayer) play
every video format I have ever tried so far. That said, I have an athlon
processor and needed to add

options         CPU_ENABLE_SSE
options         CPU_ATHLON_SSE_HACK

to my kernel config for any of this to work.
