Riiiight. It took me a while to figure out why a stream should need a
playlist option...

The trick is that the URL mms://viptvr2.yacast.net/encoderfranceinfo


Anyway, the following command works:

  mplayer -vo null -playlist mms://viptvr2.yacast.net/encoderfranceinter

Using http protocol also works and makes the playlist options more

  mplayer -vo null -playlist http://viptvr2.yacast.net/encoderfranceinter
Thanks Reimar
