No, that doesn't really work all that well.
In latest SVN MPlayer does print how full the buffer is when paused,
so that could possibly be (mis-)used to implement that kind of thing.
Another possibility would be to add an option that makes MPlayer wait
for the cache to fill for a certain amount of time.
