I joined the mplayer mailing list and have tried to seek help/information
from those nice folks..  The following is part of one of my exchanges.
Maybe the part about the timestamp may be of some help?

nothing particular: the pes packetization is as standard as you can get,
except that IIRC there's a timestamp on every single frame,
rather than once every 0.5-0.7 seconds; this fact alone can make a
lot of difference during playback.
Does the desync that you are experiencing get worse with time or does
it regularly decrease and next increase?
