Fallen Rib

Gear question I can't think of a better place to ask:

I've got a pair of Sony action cams that I'm trying to use as part of a livestreaming setup. They're piped into a BlackMagic ATEM Mini. I just started playing around with angles today to find that both the action cams' outputs are a bit... flickery, for lack of a better term. Their output goes to black every few seconds.

I've tried messing with settings on the cameras (thinking maybe it was a framerate discrepancy causing dropouts or something) to no avail. Best explanation I've got is the HDMI connection on the back. The cameras don't do have this problem when they're recording internally, it seems more pronounced when the cameras or cables are vibrating, and I can physically hold them in certain ways/angles that minimizes the output flickering.

Now I'm hoping the problem is just a couple of cheap loose Amazon micro-HDMI cables, because otherwise (the actual outputs on the cameras being loose) I'm SOL here. They're for recording DJ sets, so naturally there's going to be quite a bit of vibration. Thoughts on this? Thanks!

While I'm here, is there a livestreaming thread more appropriate for further questions on the matter?
