fdsrc becomes a (semi) live source because it is fed from a live source.
It's not a real live source because pausing the client will not drop
data. This means you need some sort of buffering on the client side
(like queue2 before avidemux, or so). You can also disable sync on the
xvimagesink if you don't intend to synchronize it against other media.
