Are you watching the stream on a mobile phone?

I'm not sure about the No-IP program, as I haven't used this myself yet. But as far as Yawcam's settings; you might want to check:

Settings - Connection - IP:
* Detect at startup
* Detect every 60 min
* Use UPNP to open ports on router
Make sure all 3 are checked.

Also, this is for FTP so I'm not sure you'd be using it for streams, but ever since I got my FTP settings as detailed below, my connection hasn't dropped once:

Settings - FTP:
* Stay connected
* Silent retry on connection error
* Silent retry on authentication error

(don't leave any of the above 3 points unchecked)

Then, "Advanced FTP Settings": * Use active FTP mode (instead of passive)

This definitely did the trick for me. It used to disconnect every few hours before I made those changes.
