set-up for watching video


i am trying to set-up my system to in order to be able to view video
clips online or download them for offline viewing. 
my current set-up: debian 'testing' with kernel 2.6.8, kaffeine,
installed kaffeine-mozilla and w32codecs from the Millarat ftp site.
the result so far is rather confusing. It cannot handle Windows Media
and Quicktime clips. For wmv clip, the screen sometimes just blank out,
esp. if the file is >1MB. The best clip i have watched are those of dci

1. What more would i need to do? Or could it be the hardware? i am using
only the on-board Intel Extreme Graphics.

2. How to save a video clip for offline viewing? i tried to do it the
same way as for image i.e. right click and then 'save as..' but there
seem to be no corresponding way for video files.
