Thanks for the help Mortiz! 

Sadly, that doesn't seem to work on my machine (OSX 10.9.4). It fails with: 

2014-08-17 16:46:07.024 ffmpeg[73888:2b03] *** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInternalInconsistencyException', reason: 'Error (1000) creating CGSWindow on line 263'

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. :-)
