Hello, i have tried searching for a fix to this issue for a while now, to no avail. So i figured i would create an account and ask the experts.

After about an hour of streaming, the audio will cut out and the video will continue to play for about 5 seconds. then the video will freeze as well. after about 15 seconds of total pause, the audio starts back up and catches up to the video. At this point, it streams normally for another 30 seconds until it does this again.

When i check my pms log after this error occurs, this is what i see, repeated many times over.

Please help

try reducing the transcode buffer size since it seems you have limited memory, try 200 or even 100. instead of the default 400.
