Apart from "don't highjack mailing threads, this is 
(also) very rude":
Streaming audio via HDMI is completely straight-forward, 
I am not sure what you mean with streaming video:
There is -f sdl and -f xv (and both work fine with HDMI) 
but ffmpeg is not a media player so I think I don't 
understand your use-case.

Or would "Use MPlayer" be a possible answer?
