This a feature I need as well!
I tried on my Fedora 22 PC but I get the error:

./ffmpeg -debug 1 -f pulse -ar 44100 -ac 2 -channel_layout stereo
-thread_queue_size 512 -i alsa_input.pci-0000_00_14.2.analog-stereo -f
v4l2 -ts mono2abs -channel 1 -video_size 720x576 -pix_fmt yuyv422
-thread_queue_size 512 -i /dev/video0 -f sdl "SDL output" -c:v libx264
-preset slower -qp 0 -pix_fmt yuv422p -c:a pcm_s16le

[NULL @ 0x3142b80] Requested output format 'sdl' is not a suitable
output format
SDL output: Invalid argument

SDL is installed. Do I need to compile with a SDL option? or there is
another output format?
