Stream Error when receiving some Transport over UDP streams

You may receive a Stream Error when attempting to receive a UDP Transport Stream in vMix.
Clicking the Stream Error red box will show more details on the error.
 
If the error mentions "no sync byte found" this means the packets are being fragmented which results in a corrupt stream.
When using FFMPEG as the source, this can be resolved by using the following url format:
 
udp://127.0.0.1:1234?pkt_size=1316
 
Where 127.0.0.1 is the IP address of vMix and 1234 is the chosen port.
