Getting info from a stream is a different thing than getting it from a
file, so the info functions don't apply. The streaming info backend is
determined by the variable `*emms-stream-info-backend*', which is set to
mplayer in my case.

I also note that while setting `*emms-stream-info-backend*' is mentioned
in emms-stream-info.el, it isn't mentioned in the manual. I'll add it to
the manual so people can do that in future.

(unless you feel like sending in a patch against the manual adding
