Examples of programs having problems are xine, vlc and mplayer.
esd is running with: esd -nobeeps. After killing esd all programs run OK.

mplayer file.mpg: just hangs
AO: [sdl] 44100Hz 2ch Signed 16-bit (Little-Endian)
SDL: Samplerate: 44100Hz Channels: Stereo Format Signed 16-bit (Little-Endian)
expected output: Start playing...

vlc file.mpg
Plays the video without sound...

xine file.mpg:
audio_oss_out: Opening audio device...
audio_oss_out: using device >/dev/dsp<
audio_oss_out: opening audio device /dev/dsp failed:
Device or resource busy
load_plugins: audio output plugin /usr/lib/xine/plugins/ init_audio_out_plugin failed.
main: the specified audio driver 'oss' failed
