[Icecast] Use case question

Hi Guys,

Can anyone provide more details about where the lag would occur if I did
try to pursue a push to talk scenario with Icecast.  I'm not sure exactly
how it works now so I'll outline the two potential discussion flows I have
in mind.

Perhaps someone could elaborate on between which steps the 5-10 seconds of
lag would come into play.

Mumble does look like it might be a better fit for what I'm trying to do,
but I still am trying to get a rough understanding of the limitations of
the different options.

*Scenario 1*

   1. You record the message for 30 seconds (T0 to T30)
   2. They listen to your message (T30 to T60)
   3. They reply for 30 seconds (T60 to T90)
   4. You listen to their reply (T90 to T120).

*Scenario 2*

   1. You record the message for 30 seconds + they listen to your message
   (since it is streamed as soon as you speak, T0-T30)
   2. They reply for 30 seconds + you listen to their reply (same
   reasoning, T30-T60)

Thanks guys
