That would be whereever muxer_write_chunk is called, though that makes
little sense since your description is missing the step where the
video is encoded.
Feel free to try but I can't imagine that this will me anything other
than more effort than getting things to work with pipes or
even change FFmpeg code to do exactly what you want...

xv seems unlikely to be a good choice for a relatively new format like PNG
anyway, but the main problem is with -lavcopts vcodec=ffvhuff which means you
didn't write PNG files but "raw" ffvhuff encoded data which hardly
any tool will be able to decode.
