I thought kmplayer was just a front-end for mplayer. I any case, please 
post the text output of mplayer, and, if possible, kmplayer. Try running 
kmplayer from a terminal to get it's output (I've never used it, so 
that's just a guess).

By comparing the outputs yourself you may be able to see what's wrong. 
If not, post here.
