Could you describe the actual _problem_ you are seeing?
"may be longer than required" to me sounds like a good thing, but
you obviously think it is wrong/bad.
Anyway that code is really old and you should try ffmpeg://rtsp://
instead (and we probably should make that the default at some point,
even though it has other problems).
