I am using FFMPEG for my project and I'd like to know more about the
buffers used in ffmpeg. I have read ffmpeg has an internal buffer,a
real-time buffer and we can add our own circular buffer/fifo buffer
according to our requirement. There are ffmpeg options to assign the buffer
size such as -rtbufsize, -buffer_size, fifo_size. I am confused here. I do
not know when to use what and when to use a certain buffer option. If
anyone could help with this,it'd be really helpful.
