First of all you have to know how much time it takes to communicate between the server and the clients. This way you will know how many frames you have to buffer. The second thing you need to know is the maximum allowed delay between the first client that shows a new frame and the last one.

Most likely you will have to synchronise the time between the server and the clients (for example using NTP) and attach some kind of a timestamp to each frame. Also check whether the processing on the client doesn't take too long, so you can fit into the desired framerate.
