Excellent...  that seems to be working.  I've never used mkfifo 
before.  I'm assuming that we have to do that because there is no mplayer 
option for -aofile to write to a pipe?  I tried writing to "-" but it 
didn't work.

Otherwise it's working great.  I'll write up a webpage for this as I'm sure 
someone else will want this info.
