If the problem is local to mplayer you might try compiling the CVS. It
has many fixes to bugs that were in the version your using. The audio
is decoding fine if you can in fact hear it. It is just the level of
the audio has gotten set really low. My personal first guess without
having looked at the output is that maybe some program added something
to the mplayer config files. Check ~/.mplayer/config for anything to
change audio volume.
