I noted the same question, and I really don't know where to apply the 
proposed solution, but I will share what I just noted today.

I had all my pluggins noted in the konq pluggins, but shock never did work.  
I just got in the habit of using the "open with" command and choose netscape 
and hoped it would fly.  This time, I went to the Movie page I have bookmarked
and clicked on the first movie.  Sure enough, it failed, and printed a notice 
to download shock etc.  I re-opened the settings page, and clicked the "scan 
for new pluggins" button.  It didn't add anything to the list of pluggin 
directories, or pluggins, but it *did* finally use shock.  Unfortunately, 
they use quicktime, so I still can't see the trailer.  fork-it.

I am using woody, with no unstable kde locally.  Here I gesticulate a big 
<shrug> in an omnidirectional fashion  :)
