I'm using mplayer to stream a shoutcast, and in general it works beautifully, but every few hours it stops playing. I think the issue is that the buffer steadily decreases, until it runs out of buffer entirely and stops. I've tried increasing the buffer size, and that helps it play longer, but eventually the buffer still runs out.

Here's the command I'm using:

mplayer -cache 500

The cache starts out around 16%, then steadily declines, until it reaches 0% and stops.

So I guess what I'm asking: is there any way to get mplayer to re-buffer?
