Uh, no.
The point is to get the CC data out you need to decode.
Now that you have the video decoded, if you want to mux it you have
to encode it again.
Though maybe it's possible to somehow use the same input stream twice as
input in FFmpeg and copy it once (for muxing) and decode it once (to get
the CC data).
