I just subscribed to this mailinglist, sorry for breaking the thread. In the 
message quoted below you say you see no reason for changing the audio rate. 
May I say that this is a feature that I would really like ! As I have a PAL 
tv that really handles 24 fps movies badly (stutters every second) I would 
just love being able to set the fps to 25 (this is possible now) and change 
the audio rate with the same factor (I don't mind the little pitch effect). 
This would enable me to watch even 24 fps movies without stutter on my TV !

Well, just my idea about that :) May I finally say that I really like 
mplayer, great job !

Ehh, it is not so simple...
I can't manipulate audio rate without losing a-v sync... everything is
syncronized to the audio. And I see no sense of changing audio rate.

Not yet. We'll move to libxmm, it supports (or at least will support) 
Currently the only way is changing the card :)
