How is it called when streaming (e.g. FireWire streaming) of video or audio stucks (or freezes) after about 10 minutes and I need to reset the streaming process (or reset the FireWire bus) to make it work again?

May I call it a "streaming freeze"?

It is called an "end of stream error". The connection is lost (due to network congestion or an internal issue) and the streaming buffer is reset.
