[Icecast] Fallback stream not preventing a disconnect

Dear all,

I"m using a combination of mopidy, icecast2 and Home-Assistant on a
raspberry pi to stream Google music to a Chromecast Audio.

The streaming works and I can listen to music. If a new song is being
started, I keep connected. However, upon changing the song or pausing the
stream, the chromecast gets disconnected. I assumed that this should be
resolved by adding a fallback stream, but, unfortunatly, it doesn't. I
checked by adding a not-so-silent fallback file, and it appears that I'm
disconnected before I can hear the fallback song.

I've tryed it with streaming as ogg instead of mp3 (and thus also using a
silent ogg file), but it gives me exactly the same result. I have no idea
what I'm doing wrong, and have no idea how to continue. I tried really a
lot of stuff, but I seem te be stuck here for already quite some time. By
emailing this board, I was hoping if anybody in the community could help me
with this?


Home Assistant was configured using this explanation:

https://community.home-assistant.io/t/need-help-
> chromecast-audio-media-center-plex-kodi/12361/11
>

This is how my icecast.xml file looks like:

This is a log of me starting the mpd service, connecting with
home-assistant (and hearing music), followed by changing a track:

One thing I noticed, is that somewere in this mailing list somebody
suggested that one should always see the fallback mountpoint in
/admin/listmounts.xsl. I however never ever see this.


If more information is needed, don't hesitate to ask.


Thanks you A LOT in advance,
Erwin
