  Thanks again. Sometimes I marvel at my own stupidity, I've written a
  number of simple shell scripts with stderr and stdout redirects, never
  occurred to me to do it w/MPlayer.

  Anyway, for the sake of of completeness, this one was done with a
  stream dump and viewing the dump. Also using verbose output. The
  actual stream URL is:
