The output device "sdl" is the first that comes to mind.

$ ffmpeg -i $infile -f sdl "SDL output"
and you can add another output, i.e. to file, after those arguments.


P.S.: You may have to add "-pix_fmt yuv420p" to get it to work,
      depending on the input format. I believe my sdl didn't like
      another format, and ffmpeg didn't convert automatically.
