Hmm.  I'm inclined to think this issue is with mplayer/mplayer2 since
livestreamer just passes the stream to the player on stdin...

I tested:

livestreamer http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nasa-hd-tv worst -p mplayer

and indeed mplayer took > 10s to startup, mplayer2 didn't even start at all
("[cli][info] Player closed"), while -p mpv or -p ffplay like the default of
vlc started immediately.

And now I tried mplayer2 with -v and got:

% livestreamer http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nasa-hd-tv worst -v -p mplayer

[cli][info] Available streams: 240p, 240p_alt_akamai, 720p+ (best),

MPlayer interrupted by signal 6 in module: demux_open
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
  It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
  gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
  DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
  won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.
[cli][info] Player closed
[cli][info] Stream ended

..so it clearly looks like mplayer2 not liking that particular stream.
