Ripping Radio Streams With Mplayer

Here is my response to the shane's great post introducing streamripper.

Nay, Do I need to use another tool just to rip a radio stream, when I can do it with my favorite mplayer itself.

/usr/bin/mplayer -dumpstream -playlist

There, you see it action ripping BBC Live News realmedia stream with mplayers's -dumpstream option. The mplayer merely dumps the radio stream to a file named "stream.dump" in the current directory.
