Without further info we can only guess, but there's two likely reasons:

1) your system isn't fast enough to play back the video
In that case add "-framedrop" to the commandline to tell mplayer to drop 
  frames in order to maintain av-sync

2) you're using a buggy sound driver
Try adding "-autosync 30" and see if it makes any difference
