I listen to my music through Music Player Daemon (MPD), so the next thing

gkrellm, and I noticed that there was very little disk
activity during playback with MPlayer, whereas MPD reads data from the disk
in 262k chunks.

I am a long time user of MPD and have never had any problems. Do you see any
MPD or ALSA errors in /var/log/messages?

Maybe a buffer somewhere is being emptied faster than it fills when using
MPD, compared to MPlayer.

Your can try increasing the buffer_before_play size in /etc/mpd.conf.

Its still a pretty dumb player that you have to be making these tweaks on.
Its bound to get in trouble in any I/O intensive environment.

Most of these things dynamically adjust their cache size and try to keep cache
full.
