The radio guys have this stuff to see if their streams are still alive.
Ah, here it is:
Use any player (mplayer, cvlc, gstreamer) with jackd support to decode
your stream or use the usual anything-to-jackd magic to make your
consumer applications work with jackd.
Something like this:
$ jackd -d dummy (won't terminate and will not output anything)
$ gst-launch uridecodebin uri=http://some.stream/ ! \
audioconvert ! audioresample ! jackaudiosink connect=none
$ mplayer -ao jack,port=SilentJack http://some.stream/

mencoder is dead. mplayer, vlc, gstreamer and co are alive.
