Live streaming 24h

Do any of you have experience of continuously performing live performances 24 hours a day?
I have problems because after a few days the live feed corrupts and no longer works. I have to make a new one.
I use ffmpeg and several live cams for monitoring volcanoes in Italy

Hi,

Do you have logs from ffmpeg and peertube server?

these are the peertube error logs referring to one of the live shows:

I think, however, that regardless of the problems with ffmpeg, the live should crash (as indeed it often does, and then restarts) but the instantiated live should not be corrupted
