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.)
