[Icecast] Fallback with Ogg Theora doesn't loop

Hello all,

I've been experimenting with the fallback option on an Ogg Theora video
stream. When I'm not connected with a source to my mount point, the
fallback video clip that I've defined (stored locally) does get played,
but it doesn't seem to repeat? Are there additional settings required
other than specifying a <fallback-mount> in my target mount configuration?

I've also found that when I connect my source during fallback play-out
(on the first and only time fallback is shown), the video stream hangs,
but doesn't switch to my source.

Is fallback supposed to work with OGV or just audio streams?

I've also tried to use <intro>, but that doesnt seem to have worked at
all. I will paste config if required, but perhaps its not
designed/tested to work with video....?

Many thanks,
