Do you get audio in other applications?
Can you play audio files, any codec, with other players?
Will mplayer play free codecs?
Please show us the output of attempting to play a file via the commandline.

Why did you not install the codecs via apt-get?

Hmmm ... so you are still using esd for sound then?
The output from a commandline attempt to play audio files would likely have told us this.
Well done for figuring it out yourself.

Please take note of the clarifying questions for future issues

works ecscept my steaming audio

putting everything to pulseaudio, seems to work.

When I say my streaming audio dosen't work, is a bit of a lie. It does but.

it shows up as a black screen on my website. I can hear it ok, but if nav away, goes too.

why isn't it starting mplayer, as a new "task"?
