I asked you to post it here, but ... oh well.

This version is 20 months old. ffmpeg does go through a lot of
development, incl. bugfixing. Please take the time to test a newer
version first, especially when it's as easy as grabbing and unpacking

The most likely reason is either wrong type (e.g. a video option with no video streams) or that it is a private option of some encoder which was not actually used for any stream.

Please note that your command line may not be doing what you expect it
to. (This shouldn't have an effect on your issue.)

Apart from that: I tested your command line (with an 1920x1080 PNG of
my own, and streaming to the same machine) and neither "ffmpeg -i" nor
VLC interrupted while playing the stream. So "works for me".

Please try a newer ffmpeg. If that still has issues, you should try to
stream from/to the same machine, to see whether that solves the issue.
Perhaps some UDP packets are lost on your link.
