-progress can use any protocol supported by ffmpeg in write mode: HTTP,
file, pipe, UDP, etc. It was not designed with specifically HTTP in mind;
pipes and datagram sockets were the main concern in fact.

Clearly, it could be enhanced to work with multiple HTTP requests, but I
am sorry to say it is not high in my personal priority list right now.

Note that it would also be possible to implement the enhancement in the web
server: being able to react to progressive content from dynamic pages would
be useful anyway.
