I believe kaffeine is the totem equivalent for KDE.  And I agree, the
tools in Debian are quite good, and I am not sure if mplayer have much
extra to offer these days.  There is the question of libdvdcss2 (for
DVD playing) and some codeces missing, but the situation is improving
there too. :) There is also gnash, the flash player.  It is able to
run quite a few flash files, but lack video support still.
