In order to completely disable video in VLC, from the command line, use the --novideo command line flag - this way only the Audio will be heard. To do the same in mplayer, use the -novideo flag. You can do the same for audio using --noaudio and -noaudio respectively.

A different propsoed solution is using -vo none in mplayer or --vo none in VLC, but this causes the video to still be decoded (just not presented) - at least in VLC.
