What you are suggesting is possible, sort of. It cannot be done using
just 1 stream, though. (AFAIK. Someone please correct me if I am
wrong.) You'll need to open 2 streams, 1 for video and 1 for audio.
After your 20 second delay has occurred, then you can stop recording
the video stream. If you are clever with your naming strategy, then
identifying the streams as being related should be a snap.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't
matter and those who matter don't mind.
