Just tested: mplayer playing a 352x388 700kb/s DIVX, with mp3 audio.

CPU usage: mplayer 5%, pulseaudio 13%.

Considering that mplayer is decompressing the audio *and the video*
while pulseaudio is ... well, doing nothing beyond putting itself
between the player and the kernel to achieve who knows what.... you
really want to know what the hell pulseaudio is doing with that
amount of CPU.

I'll keep the A/V desync , "reset card" messages and "let's just switch
to pause mode" problems of mplayer (only when used with pulseaudio) for
another occasion.
