Improper set up? Are you using mplayer console but not opening in a terminal? I don't know if that would freeze it or not. If that's your intention (to not open up all the skinned GUI apps), you may need to write a shell wrapper and then use it for whichever MIME types (I do that with various console apps).
Most online streams will be pls or icecast, not m3u playlists. I haven't tried playing m3u playlists online (much less with mplayer -- which is not in the base so this question probably belongs in extensions), but I would think xmms would do just fine with those.
