    It most likely is referring to a codec or program extension (plugin) you don't have. Do a google search for .mov codecs or kaffeine plugins.

    Remember that Kaffiene is a front-end for Xine, so make sure you're getting the codecs for Xine.
    Personally I prefer MPlayer since you can install the codecs for just about anything from one package, among other things.

    To play DVDs you need to install libdvdcss. Google for it.
