That's a big difference...

Which doesn't have the [ws] error messages, which I first thought were

Yes, try some other ao (for a list do -ao help). Do you have esd

Also try not using mad (btw. why do you use it, the way it currently
is implemented im MPlayer it should be quite slow, using the libavcodec
decoder should work as nice IMO).
