Thanks Moritz and Nicolos for additional input about SDL which also works fine.

Did exactly as you described, but there is no mouse or keyboard
interaction with the ffmpeg-piped window. Tried with -south option and
brought the mouse to the bottom of the screen, no luck.

If anyone has glued x2x with the ffmpeg-piped displays of the Xvbf
virtual server, appreciate if you share.
