[Icecast] Problems with low frame rate streams

I'm developing a streaming solution with quite uncommon characteristics.
We have some image snapshots that arrive regularly but with a very low
frequency and we would like to be observe these images a video stream.
The conversion to video is easy, ffmpeg can create a Theora ogg stream
from the static pictures and I already got it working. The problem is
that I cannot go below 4 fps. The images arrive with less frequency than
4 image / second so I would like to decrease the frame rate. If I just
generate a video, I can open it on VLC but it only works through Icecast
if the frame rate is at least 4. As a result, the system is quite
CPU-intensive, while it could work more effectively with much less fps,
even 0.25 or around. Has anyone experienced such a problem? Is there any
easy solution? Or is it some kind of internal limitation of Icecast?
Thanks in advance,
