This makes sense if the stream has both audio and video, and you wish to 
capture only the audio part. Then you instruct mplayer to push all video 
output to /dev/null instead to the display, and this increases overall 
performance because there is no video overhead.

However, this particular stream is audio only, so the -vc and -vo options have 
no effect anyway.
