FFMPEG & Decklink Delay

PostSat Jun 27, 2020 9:50 pm

I have noticed when decoding with a decklink card using ffmpeg there is a noticeable 4 second delay before video starts playing in linux. Is there any way to improve this? Since we are using live streaming... The delay makes it unbearable for our project.

I know it is the decoder because another decoder shows at most a 2 second delay. Any ideas, suggestions?

I saw something like bmdtools is an option and its possible to pipe the output into that? Is this an option for linux? Anybody tried this?

Can any developers weigh in on a possible remedy?
