Hello, I think I am experiencing the same issue at an up to date Jessie amd64 installation. There are the nvidia binary driver in use: ii kaffeine 1.2.2-3 amd64 ii libvdpau1 0.7-2 amd64 ii libxine1 1.1.21-2 amd64 ii libxine2 1.2.5-1 amd64 ii nvidia-vdpau-driver 331.67-1 amd64 Currently I had the desktop effects disabled in KDE.
With the package from Wheezy this issue is not visible. http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/k/kaffeine/kaffeine_1.2.2-2_amd64.deb With version 1.2.2-3 kaffeine is starting to link against libxine2 instead of libxine. http://metadata.ftp-master.debian.org/changelogs//main/k/kaffeine/kaffeine_1.2.2-3_changelog libxine2 supports the video output driver vo_vdpau which is in use when the problem is visible. (Due to output when starting from command line.) When forcing in ~/.kde/share/apps/kaffeine/xine-config the use of another video out driver I could also not see the issue anymore. -#video.driver:auto +video.driver:xv But I suspect that these two workarounds would lead to loosing the hardware acceleration, which vdpau would provide. When the problem is visible, viewing something in windowed kaffeine and changing to another application leads most of the time to the whole picture gets black - sound is playing. When opening a menu from the menu bar and iterating through the items there most of the time the rectangle of the before visible menu stays black while the video plays just fine in the area which was never hidden behind a menu. The third workaround works in my case also with 1.2.2-3 and automatic use of vdpau by just activating desktop effects in KDE by hitting alt+shift+F12. @Alex: probably you can check if my findings apply to your situation too.
