I have an old computer from '99, so when I started MPlayer and my audio CD kept freezing, I assumed it didn't have enough memory. But I closed X and everything except MPlayer, and it did the same thing. It freezes every one or two seconds, exactly on the *.6 second mark. This is very deliberate. For example, the second track on the CD froze at 0.6 s, 1.6 s, 2.6 s, 4.6s, 6,6s, 7.6s, and so on. What could be causing this? I have played mp3s with MPlayer and they have run flawlessly.
If some background would help, I run Gentoo Linux.
Also, if this would affect it, this is information about my personal MPlayer (what it says while playing the CD):

Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?
