First of all thanks for your answer.
Now let's see if i got it right.
You have lets say 5 mount points, all of them playing the same stream 
(from the same client - Simplecast).
Every hour you use one of these mount points (lets say #3) to insert 
alternate stream.
So with your own application (kind of scheduler i guess) you connect a 
new client (that is EZstream) to mount point 3 (i suppose only for a few 
moments - some ads and jingles maybe).
So EZstream provides mount point 3 with new stream right?
What happens to Simplecast (it was streaming to mount point 3 too - now 
both Simplecast and EZstream stream to mount point 3)?
What happens when EZstream stops streaming to mount point 3 (while, i 
guess, Simplecast kept streaming to mount point 3)?
Once again thanks.
