[MPlayer-users] Rather high CPU usage on arm (Raspberry Pi) when streaming.

I'm finding CPU usage is between 20-40% on my Pi board when streaming
radio URLs:

mplayer -playlist  http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r3.asx

is a good example. Local files tend to be ~= the 10% mark.

I was wondering if there were some options for lowering this? I've
tried with -nocache.
