OpenCV FFmpeg VideoCapture Error

I am using OpenCV 3.3 to process live video. When trying to process RTSP streamed H264 compressed video I get what appears to be an ffmpeg related errors (dquant out of range, error while decoding).

Is there a way around this? For example, are there any settings/parameters in opencv's videoCapture functionality that can be modified to deal with the problem, or perhaps use a different receiver/decoder?

Best regards,

no, you cannot do anything. it's entirely between ffmpeg and your ip-cam.

Instead of FFmpeg can I force OpenCV to use to some other receiver/decoder such as libVLC. However I don't know how would I do that. Any suggestions?
