Re: No good way to play video files located on password-protected Samba shares in KDE Plasma

That's certainly another option, though I suspect they might say that it's the system's responsibility to pass them an accessible path. For VLC, I've filed https://trac.videolan.org/vlc/ticket/18982

I will do the same for MPV and MPlayer.

Why aren't VLC etc. ask for passwords on protected links? They could/should use KWallet indirectly via the dozen cross-platform key-store libraries that we have, e.g. libqtkeychain.
