Why start/stop ffmpeg at all? (there must be a reason)
xinetd definitely isn't a good solution because of the pass-through problem.
I think you'll be better off putting some code together to do this; possibly
using netcat as the listener and having it start ffmpeg somehow. You'll
still have to use a timer to stop it.
