I am using ffmpeg to take two streams, merge them into ONE NEW stream... 
works... but due to the inherit issues of the interent disconnects are 
its down fall...

BASH script that just restarts the whole thing when it exits is fine... 
but maybe you've found a more elegant solution??? Care to share???

I do this basically via BASH

cmd = ffmpeg.....

until $cmd; do
 mail send a mail to alert on drop...

I've got -hide_banner -reconnect 1 -reconnect_at_eof 1 -
reconnect_streamed 1 -reconnect_delay_max 2  in the command... but as you 
posted ffmpeg doesn't seem to do this well or really at all (in my 
view)..hence my script....

I'd like to expand this to do some transcosding MP3 to ogg even with the 
low, ie: 1 user who wants it, since the original streamstranscoder 
project is long dead, RIP, :( :( , but need to come up with something 
reliable to set it up, forget about it. I don't mind doing it if I can do 
it server side with out sending two streams via the source.. IOW send it 

I'd love to see what you might be willing to share on the recconnect
