Then I believe we need both. Because with the menu, setting I-Frame, I
would expect to only receive keyframes from now-on. While the useful
feature we are looking for here, is to get the next buffer (or nearby)
to be a keyframe. It's the difference between creating an I-Frame only
stream and requesting a key-frame manually for recovery (RTP use case).
In this end, we should probably take that time to review the features
we have as we need:
- A way to trigger a key frame to be produce
- A way to produce a I-Frame only stream
- A way to set the key-frame distance (in frames) even though this
could possibly be emulated using the trigger.
