[MPlayer-users] Extract video frames to a Java stream

I am extracting the individual frames out of videos using mplayer using this
kind of thing:

mplayer -ss 1 vid.mp4 -nosound -vo png

I¹d like to get ahold of these images from inside a Java program (or c++)
without opening the files and reading them in.  Is there a way to extract
the image files directly to a named pipe or redirect them to stdout so that
I can get them as a stream in my code?  (The slave mode of operation looks
promising for this kind of thing)
