It could be excessive jitter as the synchronization no longer seem to
strictly obey the caching setting. It could be that the decoder outputs
corrupt timestamps, or the packetizer, or the demuxer, or the source media.
It could be that the video output renders too slowly. It could be a bug in
the input synchronization or decoder code.
