[Libav-user] streaming latency

I intend to use libav library for streaming mpeg-ts udp, given HW
encoded frame, but I'm unsure as to its latency. I have a very low
strict latency requirements.
I am interested in the encoder side only.
So, I would like to ask if the muxing/streaming of libav library also
does buffering. If yes - how can I reduce it to minimal ?
Is it possible to get low latency glass-to-glass of ~150msec using
libav in the muxing side ?
My configuration:
HW encoder-> libav mpeg-ts,udp ------- point to point ethernet
(limited to 100Mbps ethernet) ----------PC with VLC
