Yes, I've built ffmpeg many many times -- but my internet's a bit slow
so git takes a little while, and then compile takes a little while, so
sometimes I get lazy and go grab a static build when I want to know what
the latest version is like :-)
Anyway, so I tried that command above with a fresh git from a couple or
few days ago and it does play the video stream from the HTTP cam nicely
but the delay is still about a quarter of a second, or maybe only a
tenth of a second longer than mplayer -benchmark -- and mplayer adds
about half a second of delay.
So I guess my quest for fast decoding is still on!
I guess my next question is how to remove the delay out of ffmpeg so it
plays as fast/soon as it can.
There should be a call to a function I can comment out. I have a medium
skill with C so if someone can point me in the right direction I should
be able to figure it out.
Or is this the wrong mailing list to ask about source code specifics?
Thank you all very much,
