mplayer -dumpstream http://www.sky.fm/files.pls
seems to do the trick. Using the -dumpstream option, you don't get any output
to your sound, but it seems like you can run another player (like amarok)
simultaneously to monitor what you are saving.
The -dumpstream option creates a file called stream.dump in '.' Optionally
you can also use the -dumpfile <filename> switch so that you don't have to
It is not documented in mplayer --help, but can be found in man mplayer.
