I've been working on a flag on the FFmpeg side that should disable
the buffering and might make this acceptable.

The patch required on MPlayer side would be the below, though
the write function still needs to be fixed (needs to return error,
explicitly call flush for FFmpeg versions that don't have the flag)...
