Thanks, but what I really want to do is use some of mplayer's other
options to record it to a WAVE file (as I had been doing until it
mysteriously stopped working).  I can do it with vsound and realplay,
but that doesn't work as well and requires a display, whereas mplayer
can be run from an at job while logged out.
