I am not certain I understand, what you want to achieve. Maybe
elaborate a bit more?
Do you want to avoid intermediary files or have you got some data
somewhere in memory that you want to feed into ffmpeg? In the first
case pipelining to stdin comes to mind:

$ command_that_writes_to_stdout | ffmpeg -i - output
