Have you tried the #undef HAVE_AUDIO_SELECT ?

Watching your test configs and results, it seems to be a soundcard/driver
problem to me. Can you try it with some 'standard' card, for example
sb 16, sb live, or something like ESS, Vortex etc...?

Hmm, very interesting...
It still seems to be a select() problem for me. Your card's select()
always returns 'buffer empty', so mplayer fills the audio buffer with
the whole audio stream, and then begins to play video but it's
fast because it's already out of sync and tries to re-sync.

What are the results for same environment with #undef HAVE_AUDIO_SELECT
in config.h and recompiling (make distclean;make dep;make;make install) ?

Can you include the output of  mplayer -v  playing that file?

If it's file-specific, i need that file. But it's seems to be general
problem with your config.
