Yes and No, some are and some ain't.  do you have more info on the video file?

It is now, /usr/local/lib/codecs.

Not sure if there is a codecs package.  Rather, you can download 
essential or all codecs package directly from the website or the mirror.

BTW, the answers to your questions should be in the readme/install files of the kplayer/mplayer package.
