Well, that's just not going to work like this :) You'll need to use a
proper streaming protocol to provide this live stream to the second RPi,
e.g. take a look at gst-rtsp-server for this. Or just a simple streaming
protocol based on TCP that just passes the data over one TCP connection

By writing to a file and reading from the same file while writing you
have the problem that the reader can't know when the file is finished or
not, or when another few bytes are finished to be written.
