'Twas brillig, and David Björkevik at 10/10/09 15:41 did gyre and gimble:

Interesting. You're presumably using tunnels here so we can see if the 
problem is specific to module-tunnel-sink by testing a direct pulse 
connection bypassing the local PA server.

Just do:
PULSE_SERVER= mplayer foo.avi

(Set the IP and filename to taste obviously :D)

If that works correctly then it would suggest the problem lies in the 
tunnel module itself.
