Thanks for the answer and I shall try that out. The timing could get interesting here to get it right. Lets say that if a stream starts buffering as they have a tendency to do so, somehow I will need to tell the second copy of mplayer to wait as the stream of the first mplayer catches up. I am not worried about the seek.

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.
