[FFmpeg-user] RTSP keep-alive issue

I'm recording an IP camera RTSP stream. My app should record the stream
indefinitely. Sometimes, ffmpeg stops recording
after five or six minutes. I've found out that the IP camera rtsp server
doesn't support GET_PARAMETER  method (server returns
405 response), which is used to test client liveness.  Perhaps this could be
the reason of this behavior, but I don't understand why
ffmpeg stops recording only in a few cases.
Could anyone give me an explanation?
