On the one hand, that is a total non-issue if the input is not pacing, as VLC 
will happily fill the pipeline as fast as the output allows. On the other 
hand, it is fundamentally unfixable if the input is paced since you can go one 
minute into the future.

So I utterly fail the point in hacking the decoder and stream output.

And hacking the decoder thread in 3.0, not even funny. It is called "stable" 
branch for a reason.
