I had noticed in the past that -endpos doesn't work with -dumpstream,
so I've been using something like the following script to stop
recording after a predetermined amount of time (in this example 60s):



mplayer -noconsolecontrols -dumpstream -dumpfile "$FILE" "$URL" &>"$LOG" &
sleep 60
kill $PID

I hope this helps. Regards,
