[FFmpeg-user] ffmpeg startup latency for live streams

When we open a live stream with ffmpeg or ffplay it waits for a while and
then starts to play. I should decrease this initial latency as possible.
However, when I process live stream I ignore all video frames since I am
working only audio data. My question is that, due to ignoring video frames,
does it compensate initial latency so I can process audio of live stream in
real time almost with no latency?
