Decklink 4k Extreme output "not enough buffered video frames"

Summary of the bug:
Sending video out "Decklink 4k Extreme" SDI/HDMI video card does not work properly, produces the following error repeatedly:

[decklink @ 0xf0b200] There are not enough buffered video frames. Video may misbehave!

How to reproduce:
Ubuntu 18.04,
kernel 4.15.0-48-lowlatency,
Blackmagic Desktopvideo 11.1,
FFmpeg snapshot git commit fcc01ba,
Blackmagic Decklink SDK 11.1

FFmpeg was compiled and run as a Docker image based on jrottenberg/ffmpeg ubuntu build. The modified Docker source is here:

The Docker image is publicly available for testing:

The tags used for testing this were:

Install the respective Decklink SDK on your host system, then run:

docker run -it --device=/dev/blackmagic:/dev/blackmagic -v /srv/assets:/srv/assets -v /etc/blackmagic/BlackmagicPreferences.xml:/etc/blackmagic/BlackmagicPreferences.xml flaneurtv/ffmpeg:snapshot-sdk-11.1 -f lavfi -i testsrc2=size=3840x2160:rate=25 -f decklink -pix_fmt uyvy422 'DeckLink 4K Extreme'

The problem is the same, when using flaneurtv/ffmpeg:4.1-sdk-10.11.4 and the respective drivers on the host system.

Running ffmpeg with decklink in Docker is known to work. I am using this setup for years now, so this most certainly can be ruled out as the source of the problem.

This just usually means that yout system is too slow to be able to produce frames realtime and convert them to uyvy422. Try using -sws_flags fast_bilinear.
