Could you maybe try also with the phonon-backend-vlc? Also please specify which versions of Phonon, phonon-backend-gstreamer and phonon-backend-vlc you use.

For now it works.
there is one issue only. When it plays video if I change tab for "lyrics" I still have video at the bottom, that I cant see lyrics :(
