6 years later and VLC has not improved regarding this issue
What gets me is Remi's comment
"VLC does not stop at the slightest interruption. If there is transient
packet loss, playback will be paused when the input buffers underflow,
until the buffers refill to a reasonable level. This is a bit annoying,
but it is unavoidable."
The feed literally "stops" which implies the disconnection of feed which
is what we want to avoid... VLC shouldn't make that decision, that
decision should be based on the actual connection state.
So why not make an option for people decide how long they'd like VLC
would wait? Streaming or restreaming an unstable feed causes VLC to stop
and reconnect causing issues with synchronization of the streaming feed
in many cases.
