hyper mplayer

I messed up mplayer on my 64 bit install of FC6 with the last update. I read in another thread that faad2-2.5 was messed up and that messes up mplayer...also yum tries to update with livna and freshrpms repos and that's a no no. So I removed mplayer and faad2 with yum and then re-installed mplayer* using only the livna repo. It wanted to install faad2-2.0-19.20050 so I let it. Mplayer now streams mp3s fine. I have the codecs installed that enable playing swf files. Now those swf files run twice as fast as they should with mplayer. How do I get them to sound normal?

EDIT: This swf is a sound file...there is no video.

SWF are shockwave format flash files, which may comprise of video,audio or both.

how's mplayer functioning? Are you able to play other media files? Do they run twice as fast too?

MPlayer works with everything else (DVD movies with audio and video in sync, streaming radio playlist file, and playing mp3s). Just this Flash file that's audio only plays fast.

EDIT: the swf file shows this and then plays fast:

libavformat file format detected.

Also, I played this audio swf file yesterday just fine...then I updated everything with yum and now these swf files play fast with mplayer.
