I'm trying to to provide a realtime video streams to a third party
application (for test purpose I'm using avplay as the client). The source
and server are both running ubuntu 12.04.
Unfortunately I'm experiencing a large delay between the source and the
client. If I'm not able to fix this I will have to find another solution.
So far I'm streaming a webcam with the command line:
avconv -s vga -r 30 -f video4linux2 -i /dev/video0 -vcodec mpeg4 -b 50000k
And the config of avserver is:
The stream is displayed with
There is always a delay of 2 to 10s (it's constant by random at startup)
between the source and the display.
I used the 0.8.4 version but I got the same result with the latest git
version (plus few minor bugs).
I tried many options during the last 2 days and you are now my last hope :-)
Could somebody tell me what the issue is and directions to solve it ?
