[FFmpeg-user] streaming to Youtube - error message after some time

sorry, I wasn't specific enough with my last mails. I try again and be
more specific:

I like to stream to Youtube. The source is my Outdoor-Camera which is
connected via an antenna to my Router. The camera sends an h.264 encoded
RTSP-Stream. FFmpeg v4.1.9 runs on a Raspberry Pi4 with Raspbian, which
receives the stream and converts it to rtmp for Youtube. Here is the
ffmpeg command for doing so:

ffmpeg -f lavfi -fflags +genpts -i anullsrc -rtsp_transport udp -i
"rtsp://user:password@" -bufsize
5M -tune zerolatency -vcodec copy -pix_fmt + -strict experimental
-flvflags no_duration_filesize -f flv rtmp://a.rtmp.youtube.com/live2/----

Randomly after some/many hours/days I get the following error message:

frame=961817 fps= 25 q=-1.0 size=33431623k8 time=10:41:17.90
frame=961830 fps= 25 q=-1.0 size=33432111k8 time=10:11:18.40

Googling "av_interleaved_write_frame(): Connection timed out" I couldn't
find something. What does that mean? Does it mean that ffmpeg has no
connection to the camera anymore?

Thanks in advance.
