Hmm. smplayer2 works/looks fine here. (smplayer2, not smplayer, here.)
I think I've seen the error a couple times in konsole (stdout/stderr)
output, but as anyone who often runs kde apps from konsole surely knows,
kde apps tend to be incredibly noisy on stdout/stderr anyway, and that
was before this whole thread, so I just though it was kde being kde.
But I certainly haven't noticed a problem on ~arch, running kde
220.127.116.1199 (live-4.10-branch, updated a couple times a week) from the
gentoo/kde overlay, along with libpng-1.6.1-r1, according to equery.
