Often this happens when (not surprisingly) mplayer can't get the data
fast enough. Sometimes I'm not sure why it happens, as e.g. playing
over NFS gets a buffer underrun but copying the file goes at many
MB/sec. I think the default behaviour is to keep it as full as
possible, but often enlarging the cache size can help - e.g. -cache
32767. Unfortunately doing this results in extremely slow seeking
What were you playing that was getting underruns?
