I've seen a short demo of GStreamer 0.9 on FOSDEM/GUADEC with its new
pre-roll support.  The demo consisted of a video clip being played (with
music) with a similar scroller as Rhythmbox has.  Wim Taymans was able
to drag it back and forth, even in a very fast way, and the video &
sound kept following it really naturally and seemingly real-time.

I would say, wait a bit until gst0.9 is here and reassess if this
scroller still works problematic?
