Is there something like a -duration switch to tell mplayer to download only the
first N seconds of a clip? For example, the following command would seek to 10
seconds using the existing -ss switch, save the following 20 seconds of audio
as a wav file, and then exit.

	mplayer -ao pcm -ss 10 -duration 20 mms://some.site.com/foo.asf
