Kaffeine is a media player for Unix-like operating systems by KDE.[3] By default it uses libVLC media framework but also supports GStreamer.[4] It also supports the use of MPlayer project's binary codecs for proprietary formats. Kaffeine developers have also produced a Mozilla plugin to start the player for streaming content over the web.

Features include streaming, DVB, DVD, Video CD and CD audio.[5]
