I was just talking to someone who wants to watch live Internet
concerts on their PC being broadcast in H.264. They also want to
listen to the audio from other networked devices around the house. If
you try doing this with multiple streams back to the main server it
all gets out of sync.

Can Pulse provide a solution? The idea would be to bring in the H.264
stream, break off the audio and multicast it on the LAN. But the
multicast receivers need some time to process the data. Can I set a
configurable delay in the local stream before passing it to the
decoder in order to give the remote streams time to do their
