MPlayer 1.0rc2 doesn't have the scaletempo filter.

Disable the option "High speed playback without altering pitch" in Preferences->General->Audio.

The problem of Tim Kornhammar seems to be different:

It seems xv doesn't work for you. Use x11 (or gl/gl2) instead.

Thank you rvm, may I report this bug to the smplayer package or Mplayer? (now playing video works, but If I can't use scaletempo it's still a bug)

I don't know if this is a bug.

The version of mplayer included in ubuntu just simply doesn't have the scaletempo filter, it was added some weeks after 1.0rc2 was released.

On the other hand smplayer is ready to use that filter (but I think it won't try to use it by default). I think it's not a bug to be ready for new features. Also the help in the preferences dialog already states that that option requires at least mplayer dev-SVN-r24924.

Perhaps we could see about updating mplayer in intrepid.

I changed the audio option to ALSA -- pulseaudio gives me massive troubles in Hardy.
