[FFmpeg-user] Timeout when joining multicast streams from SDP

I have an SDP file that I use to directly join a multicast video stream:

ffmpeg -protocol_whitelist file,udp,rtp -i test.sdp

Due to some ongoing network issues, a succesful join can take up to 60
seconds. However, after 10 seconds, the above times out with:

Output file #0 does not contain any stream

I have tried various timeout options (stimeout, analyzeduration etc) but
can't seem to raise this timeout above 10 seconds.

Any ideas?
