Thanks all! It is quite easy method to install and run Haiku Media Kit,
though it still doesn't work for me.
Firstly, you give me a link for bad app. This is a link for mixer
preferences. But I had been thinking a bit and I searched for 'Haiku Media
Kit alpha 1' :) .
Secondly,  this is what I get when I start 'runserver.sh':

BMessage: what =  (0x0, or 0)
    entry    be:_default, type='LONG', c=1, size= 4, data[0]: 0xffffffee
(-18, '')
    entry   be:_addon_id, type='LONG', c=1, size= 4, data[0]: 0xc (12, '')
    entry be:_internal_id, type='LONG', c=1, size= 4, data[0]: 0x0 (0, '')
    entry   be:_input_id, type='LONG', c=1, size= 4, data[0]: 0x0 (0, '')
    entry be:_flavor_name, type='CSTR', c=1, size=22, data[0]: "Video Window
Consumer"
    entry       be:_path, type='CSTR', c=1, size=56, data[0]:
"/boot/beos/system/add-ons/media/videowindow.media_addon"
BMessage: what =  (0x0, or 0)
    entry    be:_default, type='LONG', c=1, size= 4, data[0]: 0xffffffef
(-17, '')
    entry   be:_addon_id, type='LONG', c=1, size= 4, data[0]: 0xd (13, '')
    entry be:_internal_id, type='LONG', c=1, size= 4, data[0]: 0x0 (0, '')
    entry   be:_input_id, type='LONG', c=1, size= 4, data[0]: 0x0 (0, '')
    entry be:_flavor_name, type='CSTR', c=1, size=10, data[0]: "Radeon In"
    entry       be:_path, type='CSTR', c=1, size=51, data[0]:
"/boot/home/config/add-ons/media/radeon.media_addon"

I am sure I don't have 'radeon.media_addon' installed on my PC (BTW, my PC
is AMD Duron 1200MHz on ECS K7S5A-SiS735 with integrated AC97 audio and LAN,
and with ATI Radeon 7200 32MB SDR TV-OUT, no-patched kernel) because after
first run I deleted it. Then I deleted Radeon driver and start my BeOS in
'grey-mode' and after that I still have the message above. Now I am going to
install the newest Radeon driver and I will watch what's going on.
