We use Icecast version 2.4.4 and recently added an intro (preroll) to 
one of our channels. Although we haven't had any direct complaints, 
there has been a discussion thread with some of our public radio 
colleagues getting complaints about users receiving a repeat of the 
intro many times when their device switches from WiFi to LTE or unstable 
Internet connections.

One of our colleagues received a response from Triton Digital about 
"utilizing your HLS enabled mounts for streaming". I am not familiar 
with this technology, could someone here provide more information about 
how this could be used with Icecast and how it would help in the case of 
unstable Internet connections and/or intros?
