ffmpeg ought to be able to read the ffm file and be able to output to 
something that other players can read.  And, provided that the data is 
being buffered in the ffm file (File path set properly and FileMaxSize 
big enough to hold all the data) you can feed multiple clients at 
different times.  You may need to specify the time that you are trying 
to seek to in your http: request.
