why the mplayer step?  why not go direct from VLC to ffmpeg:

ffmpeg -i rtp:// -r 24 http://localhost:8090/feed.ffm
in terminal 1 and skip terminal 2 entirely?

Also, you could turn down the caching value in VLC when you send the stream.

Even better would be to skip VLC entirely, supposing that you can read 
from the webcam with ffmpeg....
