    9696Useful is mplayer with its -benchmark for testing latency (-noaudio and/or -nocache *might* be useful, though I haven't found -nocache to provide any latency benefit it might work for you).

    98 Using the SDL out option while using FFmpeg to receive the stream might also help to view frames with less client side latency: "ffmpeg ... -f sdl <input_here> "window title""  (this works especially well with -fflags nobuffer, though in my tests is still barely more latency than using mplayer -benchmark at best).  This doesn't have a "drop frames if you run out of cpu" option so it can get quite far behind at times (introduce more latency variably).

     100Another possibly useful receiving client is "omxplayer -live"
