Has anyone else noticed "computer generated" type audio when people talk in movies. It's kind of hard to explain, but if you listen closely you will notice it. It seems to of appeared somewhere in the 0.6x branch. let me provide some info from mplayer while playing a movie it appears in.

Then you will notice it, it's not just that movie (Swordfish.DVDRip.DivX-DOMiNiON.avi) it appears in lots of movies, and even in dvds (real dvds straight off the dvddrive). If anyone else has found a workaround let me know, 

Cheers! mplayer team thank's for making the best movie player out there!
