mplayer how to dump the streaming internet TV


Today I would like to figure out of how to save the Internet TV for later view by using mplayer.
Example address of TV station: http://mms1.mekongtv.net:8888/bayontv

I would like to limit the dumpfile size or duration to limit but it did not work. Here are a few thing I tried:

Code:
mplayer -dumpstream -dumpfile "$(date +%H%M_%d%m%y).wmv" -endpos 00:05:00 http://mms1.mekongtv.net:8888/bayontv
Code:
mplayer -dumpstream -dumpfile "$(date +%y%m%d_%H_%M).wmv" -ss 00:00:00 -endpos 00:05:00 http://mms1.mekongtv.net:8888/bayontv
Code:
mplayer -dumpfile "$(date +%y%m%d_%H_%M).wmv" http://mms1.mekongtv.net:8888/bayontv -endpos 30mb
I just read http://wiki.multimedia.cx/index.php?title=MPlayer_FAQ and they say that -dumpstream and -endpos or -frames dont work together. Is there anyway or other software that I could dump the internet TV to a file with limit duration or size? The three commands above stream the file forever until I interrup.

Thanks a lot,

If anything, you could pipe a limit into it, such as using awk or grep, or something from that nature.

I do not understand, could you explain it more detail?

Thanks,

I'm just saying in general, maybe use grep or awk to do whatever you are trying to do with the file.

Nice to see that you figured something out. Mark your thread as solved if you can, thanks.
