This command can be useful but as you found out, it is not
ideal to dump a stream from the internet.
You could test "mplayer -dumpstream ffmpeg://http://example..."
FFmpeg can dump some streams with complicated command lines
but I believe it fails for hls.
(Many people have asked here how to fix broken mov files,
I don't remember any useful answers.)
