Corruption of the encoded video stream. There is also no licensing file which means it is unclear that a revised version of the hauplauge can even be published.
Some errors can be detected via FFmpeg as stream corruption but occasionally the errors are baked into the video stream. These issues usually materialize either as 0-byte recordings or heavily damaged i.
