yes, I'm also sad a bit, because mplayer is nearly unuseable on my 
Toshiba 4300 laptop(Cele III 600Mhz,128MB,S3 Savage MX/IX 8MB, X 4.1.0,mdk 8.1)
I've got the movie sound and video out of sinc every time and of course 
the "Your computer is too slow to play this...".(tried a lot of vo, 
sdl:dga,fbdev,x11,xv vc:divx,divx4)
I think something is wrong with the audio driver because if i use sdl as 
ao, I didn't get slow perf!(sync is also OK) but mplayer gets frozen after 1 or 
two minutes:
"SDL: Audio timeout - buggy audio driver? (disabled)
audio: Bad file descriptor				"
The driver is ymfpci. I've tried it with alsa, it doesn't work.
Does anybody using ymfpci as audio?(Yamaha cards)
