Streaming is buffered, there is less you can do about this.
The only thing I see is recuding the clients buffer, but since connection is 
tcp, there will stil be delay.

The correct solution is to use some udp streaming that all clients may receive 
at the same time. This can be achieved with vlc for instance.

They seh when you have nuff money
You got a whole heap o' friend
But when your money done dem just don't know you again
When your dollars gone dem nah see you again
And when your money done dem nah want see you again
Money money money money is the root of all evil
And you see it
