[Icecast] Playing a recorded mp3 file like a livestream

Hello,

in advance: You can also answer me in German.

I know Icecast over 10 years very well. My problem is this and I am 
trying to describe it very short:

If my Icecast stream/mount is offline, a recorded MP3 file should be 
played via the Icecast mount. The mount is configured as follows:

<mount>
     <mount-name>/LiveStream1.mp3</mount-name>
     <max-listeners>1000</max-listeners>
     <max-listener-duration>36000</max-listener-duration>
     <burst-size>122880</burst-size>
     <mp3-metadata-interval>61440</mp3-metadata-interval>
     <no-yp>1</no-yp>
     <fallback-mount>/Recorded.mp3</fallback-mount>
     <fallback-override>1</fallback-override>
</mount>

That all works fine, but an HTML audioplayer is used on a homepage, 
which disconnects and reconnects after 60 minutes to that mount. 
Unfortunately, this cannot be changed in the HTML player, says the 
developer. So the MP3 playback starts over every 60 minutes with each 
reconnect. The user can hear only the first 60 minutes again and again.

Question 1:
Is it possible to setup the mount that it doesn't start the MP3 file 
from the beginning every time for each listener?

Question 2:
If not, can the mount configurated like this, that it plays the MP3 file 
as an endless livestream. When the user/player connect to the mount it 
doesn't play the recorded mp3 file from the beginning, but runs it in an 
endless loop.

Question 3:
If is not possible, is there a software for Windows that sends the MP3 
directly on the server as a stream to an Icecast mount, in an endless 
loop, like a real livestream?

I hope someone can help me. I already say thank you.
