I change modes with 'xrandr -s ...'. When in single screen size, video playback does not work, only in full resolution.

This is because Guidance still uses Xinerama and it is almost completely deprecated. As you found, xrandr is the currently supported approach. In KDE4 for Intrepid, we have a different tool that uses xrandr that replaces Guidance. Making Guidance use xrandr would require a significant redesign that simple isn't going to get done.

Changed in kde-guidance:
