You could add a feature request for ffplay to "ignore timestamps and
display frames as fast as possible" though..I'm not entirely convinced
that this is your problem here...maybe it's some latency in the mpeg4
decoder itself?

What about ffplay/ffmpeg with -loglevel debug, does it show it
receiving frames quickly?  Did you try the other tricks mentioned on
the website?
