That is normal. ASS/SSA files need to be read completely before anything can
be done with it. ffmpeg can know it has read the whole file from a pipe only
when the other end of the pipe is closed.
(ffmpeg has this kind of behaviour with almost all text subtitles format,
mostly for convenience reasons; but for ASS this is mandatory, since the
events are not necessarily in chronological order.)
I suggest you post on the users mailing-list (which would have been the
right place for this message too) explaining what you are trying to achieve
(and not a non-working attempt at doing it).
