Some details on the box cpu/gpu/os and connection type would be useful
also the complete output of mplayer -v playing the stream.
With verbose output and transport streams there will be too much with
demuxer=mpegts, demuxer=lavf will be better just to reduce the output
and also as a test just to see if it makes any difference.
If it's linux and using cpufreq ondemand -
then it may help to set cpu(s) to performance.
Another test would be to use -dumpstream and see if that plays OK.
If your box is too slow for some reason I don't think you will see the
same errors as you posted playing from disk.
You could try removing the vf= line.
