Add delay to live video stream.

Add delay to live video stream.


I'm working on an application that can capture and display live video streams. I want to be able to display the live video stream from a camera delayed up till 2 min. My first thought was to use the IMediaSeeking interface and setting the start position back in time to the required delay, but according to MSDN this is not possible when working with live video streams from a camera. Are there any filters that I can use to delay the live video stream or any other methods that I can use to achieve the delay on the live video stream?
If anybody knows how a delay can be implemented your help is greatly appreciated.
