Look into the mplayer configuration files on your home. One of them will
probably have a line 86 that is wrong.

You can try renaming or deleting your .mplayer in your /home/user
Logout and login, when you open mplayer it will rebuild the deleted/renamed folder.
You can do it as well with smplayer. For smplayer it is in your /home/user/.config
I tried everything above and no luck.
Audio works fine, at least as good as possible, since I updated from opensuse 11.1 (due to a bug that has not been resolved). I guess the problem was upgrading and downgrading KDE.
I might have to do a fresh install and erase /home folder.
I’ll do it when I have a few spare hours! sometimes linux feels like windows!:\
to get rid of this error please go to the line 86 in the system wide mplayer.conf file. You will find it in “/etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf”. There please remove the “,alsa,” pattern and put there “ao=alsa” (without the quotation marks ). The error should be gone.
