The delay ensure that the media streams at its natural rate. This is
expecially important when media is being streamed from a file. For MP3
data the clock rate is 90kHz so if, for example, packet 2 is to be
played out 0.1 seconds after packet 1, it would have a timestamp exactly
0.1 * 90000 = 9000 units larger than that of packet 1. 

How does it work the delay in the RTP Plugin? 
Can I set this property for each kind of payload?
