[FFmpeg-user] continuous streaming even if streaming source isn't available

I use the following command to save a camera stream to disk:

$ ffmpeg -t 3600 -vcodec copy -acodec copy \
  -i rtsp://<IP:Port>/live.sdp \

Now if the network connection is lost or the camera is unavailable,
»ffmeg« stops recording and exits with an error.
Is there a away, to let »ffmeg« continuously try to reconnect to the stream
source and only end if either the record duration is reached or a kill signal
