I tried your suggestion for various values, 10000, 10000000, etc but do not
seem to get any different behavior. I forgot to mention earlier, if it
makes any difference, I am running ffmpeg on windows with the binary build
from ffmpeg.zeranoe.com. I can attach the console output if it would help,
but even with debug output on, everything seems to be running normally then
everything abruptly stops when the camera is disconnected.

Any idea what might be going on?
