I tested under Win32 with VLC 1.1.0-git-20100326-0002 using URLs mms://
wm9.streaming.telstra.com/UCS-wh_fbi0live1 and
http://www.radio88.nu/listen.asx and delay is almost gone. Unfortunately I
can't test your patch since my own nightly build seems to crash if I try to
open those URLs in it (I have no clue why).
