Super old thread, but I happen to be looking to do the exact same thing
(increasing the local/network buffering to greater than the 60 seconds

Have you found a solution?

For my purpose i need video delay from capture device about 3 - 5
> minutes. There is a limit in live-caching option specification 60000 ms.
