Comment (by mjs973):

 An .mp4 container is not streamable; the file layout requires seek
 operations. The only way to play one is to download the entire file to
 memory or local disk.

 Most likely your pipe:0 test only works because your test file is smaller
 than the internal memory cache inside ffmpeg. For a big .mp4 file, your
 architecture will never work.
