what you're overlooking is all the mplayer stdout (including constant status
line updates) that's getting into that crap file beside the audio stream.
the file may be partially playable under certain conditions, and not in

adding -really-quiet should help, as it turns off all (in theory) of
the stdout that mplayer normally generates so that you may use stdout
for your own purposes.

you could also use named pipes I suppose.
