Comment (by setosha):

 Replying to [comment:5 compn]:
 > oh, and indexes are required for .mp4/.mov files. mostly you wont be
 able to use those over pipes.
 > its possible to use the qt-faststart program to move the index from the
 end of a mov/mp4 file to the start of the file. then it might work better
 over pipes. assuming you have the time/space to run that program on all
 mp4/mov files.

 so why it works with pipe: ?
 stdin can't perform scroll too. But ffmpeg don't wait for end of file.
