This doesn't seem to work anymore in most KDE distros that I've tried... Opening the file from dolphin in dragon player or smplayer just does nothing. And even if it did its still far worse than with gvfs because I have to download a huge video file instead of just streaming it.

It works far better than KDE's KIO system for doing things like streaming videos from a smb share. Its very convienient, quick, and requires zero configuration.

Figured out a somewhat hacky workaround to my issue with streaming videos on my lan with kde
enabled IIS on the windows box and enabled directory browsing. Now I can just browser the videos via http in my web browser and stream them via smplayer just fine. No dealing with mounting shares or fstab silliness.
