Two or more ways

1) 
$ pulseaudio -k 
from man
 -k  --kill                            Kill a running daemon

2) in ~/.mplayer/config

add a line
ao = alsa

3) or from command line switch 

$ mplayer options -ao alsa

directly use alsa instead of ao=pulse

I have noticed that if I install mplayer via rpmfusion or other repo, it(mplayer) uses pulse by default, but if I compile from source it uses the 
best -ao option available.  Just an observation.

Hope this helps in some way.

Antonio
