Sending of fallback files is not rate limited
Currently (2.4.2 Linux), fallback files are sent at an uncapped rate which could be potentially several times faster than the playback bitrate. This causes
fallback-override to be very ineffective. Because we are sending the files faster than the client plays it back, its buffer gets fuller and fuller until it reaches its limit of what is potentially several minutes or hours worth of fallback file audio to play. When the client is moved back to the original mountpoint, they have to wait until they've played all of this extra fallback audio before reaching the live stream again which at that point will be very delayed compared to the the incoming stream.
Instead, the fallback files should be rate limited so that it only sends at most its playback bitrate every second. It may well be this bitrate has to be given in the form of a setting, but I feel this is an important issue to fix regardless.
