Try playing them as root.. Ive seen messages about being unable to play
sound or video in 'realtime' unless you have root access to the hardware..
Worth a try.. But something to do with software rendering and unable to use
hardware features unless root access to the hardware?

I am not using MPlayer and I'm not sure what Real-encoded refers to.

These all play correctly on my Win2k PC, so it's not the files themselves.

The files-types I've tried inlcude:
 mp3, mp3, mpg, avi, wmf, mpe, and others.  

I have tried as many as I can, but they all have the audio playing about 0.5
- 1 sec after the video.
