[Icecast] Icecast and Chrome on Android

We've got an icecast server setup and one of our clients wants listeners to
click on the "Listen Live" link on their website on mobile clients to
listen to their stream. We've noticed that with Chrome on Android, the
audio plays for about 5 seconds then there's a 30-45 cutout before the
audio resumes playing. Firefox on Android and Safari on iOS don't exhibit
this issue. I've been trying out several HTML 5 JavaScript audio players
but they all encounter the same cutout issue. I've tried adjusting the
client caching settings in icecast but nothing seems to lessen the 30-45
second cutout. Anybody have any solutions for getting audio streaming
working with Chrome on Android?
