Playing programmes (in Linux version)

I have tried:
get_iplayer --force --raw --stream 104 | mplayer -cache 3072 -
>/home/john/Temporary/iRecorderLog.txt 2>&1

but then it does not divert the stdout & stderr output to the log file
specified above. I suspect that the log file contains the movie (which
plays OK) & text because it's huge after a few seconds playing, gEdit
does not recognise as a text file and Movie Player does not play it.
