Since you and I have both used a modern version of MPlayer and the same syntax I suspect that you have a network problem rather than an MPlayer/stream problem. (As my own efforts were completely successful).

As for the -bandwidth option the man pages simply say that it allows faster cache filling and stream dumping by setting a maximum delivery bandwidth. From a practical point of view it certainly allows very fast download of some streams.
