Why is my streaming to Facebook/YouTube delayed?

The way it works is that the content player on the client’s side needs to pre-buffer the stream and starts playing it when it has at least 10 seconds. The length of the buffer may vary depending on internet speed, computer speed, and few more variables. All of these things have to be done in order to play the stream as seamlessly as possible. Depending on the type of browser, the length of the delay (buffer) may be different. When you're broadcasting directly to Facebook there will be the same delay. Also, Facebook itself adds delay to this move as it is analyzing the movie and so they need to process it before they send it to the viewers.
