which is probably introduced by client side buffering.
If you want to minimize buffers - you should turn of burst-on-connect in

It might even increase lag - depending on client software
If the client software uses fixed size buffers it will buffer longer

Certainly fewer players will have support for speex I guess.

If you want to experiment with speex: I think ezstream can handle this.
oggfwd too



PS: I think this is off-topic here. This is more of an user question
than an question about further development of icecast?
