When streaming, you always receive the same quality as sent, except for
packet loss. The transport cannot re-encode the video.

What you are probably doing is re-encoding the input video using
ffmpeg. You should show us your ffmpeg command line and the complete,
uncut console output. Everything else is just guessing.

My guess is that you need to use "-c copy".
