I'm not certain but I suspect it could be x264enc introducing the
delay. Ideally you need an x264 newer than the one in 10.04 (newer
than API version 85) and then the next GStreamer release compiled
against it. Then you could use the tune=0x4 option which enables a
zero latency tuning. However, the zero latency tuning corresponds to:
else if( !strncasecmp( s, "zerolatency", 11 ) )
param->rc.i_lookahead = 0;
param->i_sync_lookahead = 0;
param->i_bframe = 0;
param->b_sliced_threads = 1;
param->b_vfr_input = 0;
param->rc.b_mb_tree = 0;
Which, in GStreamer properties with newer -ugly from the GStreamer
developers' PPA could also be given as:
rc-lookahead=0 sync-lookahead=0 bframes=0 sliced-threads=1 mb-tree=0
(variable frame rate input is not exposed through the properties).
Perhaps some of those options are only available in newer x264 APIs
and so are not relevant to older x264 as they were not yet
Give it a go. Hopefully it will help. :) I think lookahead introduces
the largest delay when encoding.
