-Multi-Level Fallbacks-
Multi-level fallbacks allow for specifications of a series of fallback mounts
that you could use, for instance, to set up a series of progressively lower
bitrate streams that would be cascaded through. For instance, a modem user
would connect to the highest bitrate stream, and then could be cascaded
down to a progressively lower stream until they reach a value they can
that you can use to automatically move listeners in the event of a source being
disconnected. In the event of new listeners attaching to the source stream that has
been disconnected, they are routed to the fallback mount (if specified).
Icecast now has fallback-override capability as well which means that in the event
of a source stream failure, listeners are moved to the fallback mount, and then
automatically recaptured when the original source stream returns.
