I have an IP camera which streams a rtsp The follow code allows me to show the rtsp stream

int main(int, char**) {
     cv::VideoCapture vcap;
     cv::Mat image;

     const std::string videoStreamAddress = "rtsp://my_rtspstream";

     //open the video stream and make sure it's opened
     if(! {
        std::cout << "Error opening video stream or file" << std::endl;
        return -1;

    for(;;) {
        if(! {
            std::cout << "No frame" << std::endl;
        cv::imshow("Output Window", image);
        if(cv::waitKey(1) >= 0) break;

The problem is that i have about 450-600 ms of delay difference between what is the camera seeing and what i have o the window of opencv, and i need less becouse is camera with pt control.

Do you have any aproach? I should use another thing instead opencv??
