I get a similar problem when watching Tv and doing other memory intensive
stuff. The sound and picture start to stutter. If I close some programs down
it sorts itself out. This is on a 3 GHz AMD (32Bit) with 1Gb of Ram on a dual
memory channel board. Basically I'm pushing the memory / processor to its
limit. 256Mb of RAM is suggested MINIMUM required. If you can afford to
invest in some more RAM you will find its more cost effective than up
gradeing your CPU, and having more RAM will allow mplayer to buffer more of
the sound file that its playing.
