I tried to run mplayer in terminal on .ogg file:

# mplayer /usr/share/sounds/gnome/default/alerts/drip.ogg

and got this:

MPlayer just hanged while trying to play this .ogg.
But when I feed it with relatively long song it plays it, it's ok.

Other players (not in terminal) can play this file.

MPlayer2 is a fork of MPlayer, we have nothing to do with it.
I tried it locally with MPlayer and it did not hang, though it did not output any sound either with -ao pulse, -ao alsa worked better - which might hint at that this might be an issue with PulseAudio?.
But either way, if you want us to look into it please try with MPlayer, not MPlayer2.
