Frequent Errors When Reading From IP Camera

I'm reading video frames from a Foscam FI9805P camera. My code is in Python.

I'm getting frequent errors when trying to read a frame. Sometimes cap.read() returns an error. Other times I get a warning or error from the opencv/ffmpeg code. (i.e. the error comes from the "system").

My camera object is established with: cap = cv2.VideoCapture('rtsp://<username>:<password>@192.168.1.202:88/videoMain')

I've pasted below an example of what I'm getting. The lines in the format "<date time=""> Error on frame read." are coming from my code. It's what I output when I check for an error after executing cap.read().

A friend who knows a lot more than me is saying there may be something going on with frame rate or something like that.....that a different video setting on the camera might improve this. Or....alternatively.....could this mean the WiFi connection is shaky?

Thanks.
