Neither, I was suggesting an option to use ffmpeg to display the video on
the fly. Try it (on a local file, that would be simpler).

The flags for the "low_delay" option seem to indicate it is relevant both
for encoding and decoding, and I see a lot of decoders actually checking it.

Again, trying it to see if it makes a difference is the most efficient
course of action.
