To use the same bandwidth for ripping and playing a stream I start a relay when ripping with streamripper :

$ streamripper -r link2stream

And to play it :

$ vlc http://localhost:8000

With vlc this works fine, but I want to use mplayer which doesn't work :

$ mplayer http://localhost:8000

Playing http://localhost:8000.
