I've never tried it with mplayer streams but maybe you could start a 
copy job:

echo -n >pipe1.avi
tail -f --retry pipe1.avi >pipe2.avi &

Then start your dump:

mplayer -dumpstream rtp://someIp:5004 -dumpfile pipe1.avi

When your dump is done, get your tail to the foreground:


and stop it with ^C
