I am trying to find a way to extract the audio portion of a stream I am recording while recording it. Simply put, I do not want to wait for the stream recording to be over before I start extracting the audio portion. Everything has to be done at once. Is that possible?

You should be able to start a second copy of mplayer and play the file. 
You can play it so long as you don't overtake the process laying down 
the video. You won't be able to seek -- actually you can if you add 
-forceidx, but you'll only be able to skip up to the point the file 
existed when the index was made.
