If you are using UDP protocol then maybe increasing circular buffer size
can help. Just add these options
after the IP address:
   1. overrun_nonfatal
   2. fifo_size.



This will increase input buffer to 50MB, which should be enough. On the
other hand if you are simply losing
the data along the way RTMP will guarantee that packets are delivered
