yep. works great here. although i recently switched to ao=jack since jackd 1.0.2 no longer segfaultks with divide by zero errors in the alsa-interface callback every 5 minutes like previous versions.

fwiw, every line in my /etc/mplayerplug-in.conf is commented out, so its just using whatever is in /etc/mplayer.conf. which makes getting audio running smoothly easy to debug.

note also, that WMV and RealMedia are supported in recent versions of FFMPEG. so update that, and your mplayer, and you cna proably remove your proprietary codecs...which could possibly improve playback reliability..since its not using a hacked dlopen and weird pointer tricks to run windows binaries...
