So the `obvious' answer is no: ffmpeg cannot/does not use an output
stream from a filter as an input in this fashion? If the answer is so
obvious, why not just write one word instead of many?


I am still not clear about the documentation for the movie source
(https://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-all.html#toc-movie-1). The description of


    The name of the resource to read (not necessarily a file; it can
    also be a device or a stream accessed through some protocol).
leaves it open in my mind if `a stream' might be an output stream
produced by a filter.
