For achieving the same result as the SDL/opengl outdevs you can do 
something like:

ffmpeg -i t.mov -c:v ffv1 -c:a aac -f fifo -fifo_format mov -map 0:v 
fifo.mov & mpv fifo.mov

Either way, an outdev isn't really the right place for a preview; what 
if you want to check how video/audio looks/sounds half way down a 
filtergraph? An avfilter would make much more sense for this.
