"Suddenly" the mp4-videos from my mobile phone cannot be played anymore, no matter what player I use: it only shows a black screen plus plays the sound, but no image.

Just to speed things up, vlc cannot build with the current ffmpeg as a result the package ffmpeg2 was created especially for it and unfortunately it doesn't have ffplay, ffprobe and ffmpeg so it can't be tested. Kaffeine on the other hand uses kde's audio codec system and I think, via gstreamer. In kaffeine's case if you install gstreamer-libav then you should be able to play anything that ffplay can.
You can also install vlc-beta which uses the present ffmpeg.
I use kaffeine from time to time but mostly use xine.
Also looking at vlc it doesn't have native x265 support which is the codec needed for your video but libavcodec56 uses libx265-130 so make sure that that is installed.
To test gstreamer capabilities execute:
gst-discoverer-1.0 nameofvideofile
