This doesn't answer your question, but you can consider using ffmpeg's
"sdl" output, which does go to screen:

ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -i logo.png -filter_complex overlay -f sdl dummy

That doesn't have the ffplay features such as keyboard control though.

You might also be able to pipe from ffmpeg to ffplay, but figuring that
out is too complicated for me right now, late at night. :-)
