I am having errors on ffmpeg when transrating a Multicast/UDP stream from HD 1920x1080 to 720x576 profile and outputing again to multicast:

./ffmpeg -loglevel error -i udp://@ -c:v libx264 -preset fast -s 720x576 -bsf:v h264_mp4toannexb -profile:v high -sn -flush_packets 0 -f mpegts udp://@

After 1 days or sometimes 2 days, very randomly video freezes with half image blurred/distorted and freezed while sound is ok. on the console i see this errors every second, like it enters a loop. I need to restart and the process assume fine for another day. CPU and MEM of the process are ok.
