Question mplayer error "frame skip 8"

mplayer seems to be very great movie player. Unfortunately I get an error every time I play a movie. The error message is :

frame skip 8

at the very beginning of movie. It happen every single time when I play movies. Somebody solved this problem by using a option :

gmplayer -really-quiet %F

The all comments can be found at :

I supposed Ubuntu allows users put options for application like mplayer. I cannot find where I can do it in Debian lenny. Anyone knows it?

From the Debian Lenny mplayer man-page:

-really-quiet (also see -quiet)
Display even less output and status messages than with -quiet.
Also suppresses the GUI error message boxes.
