Well, Windows has always been pretty braindead out of the box, where
Unix has all the funky tools.

As Carl mentioned, you can grab a Windows version of GNU tail
somewhere. Also, there seems to be a Tail.exe in the Resource Kit

I'm afraid ffmpeg is not capable of ignoring EOF. (I even believe the
codebase is not prepared to easily introduce an option for that.)

Good luck,
