Could you show us where/when is that new change in 1.2?
I would like to compare two nighlty build (before and after) in our
"low lattency lab".
How is it different from "--clock-jitter 0"?
Do you still have options to disable that increase?

In our case, VLC was always capable to recover, only the new delay was
not always acceptable.
But I don't remember seeing a VLC crash because of empty input buffer.
