You're not the only ones experiencing this problem.  Gentoo has this bug 
report http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94577 discussing the same 

It might be easier to figure out the problem if you post:
    a) the name of your soundcard
    b) your .asoundrc (or, if it's the digital sound one, just let me 
know and tell me which, if any, configuration you've enabled as default)
    c) the output of:
        mplayer -v /path/to/video_file 2>&1 | col -b | tee mplayer.log
    d) your ~/.mplayer/config file
