Command line audio streamer, with status?

I'm trying to find an command line application, that I can use with some software I'm writing, to listen to streamed audio over the internet. MPlayer can do it, but I can't get any feedback from it to tell me the audio stream name or the status of mplayer. I'm working in bash script and need the following features from the command line.

1. To stream rtsp and http links
2. Able to pause the stream from a bash script
3. Able to get the status of the stream, i.e. loading, playing, paused, and to get file information.
4. Able to mute the volume

Does anyone know of a player that can do this?
