[FFmpeg-user] Switching live input source

Hi All,

Does anyone know a means to switch the input to ffmpeg while it is running?

i.e. say I am doing an encode from a live source but would then like to
switch the input to a file for 60 seconds and then back to the live source
without disrupting the encode. Assume that the formats would be the same.

Can this be done with pipes or a filter?

Any thoughts appreciated.
