I think it's vstack that has issues at 02:03, consistently. I reduced
your filter to (split and vstack without concat):


And it exposes the same overflow and stall. Even if you reduce to two:


If you add -ss as an input option, the stalling behavior will just

Using "-t" as an input option, it becomes apparent that the vstack
buffer queue overflow appears between 2.1 and 2.2 seconds, so it
obviously correlates with the stall. (I checked this just in case.)

Now, I managed to get it to work by inserting the fifo before [v1o]:


Unfortunately, that doesn't help in your original filter chain. But
good luck experimenting from here. ;-)
