[Icecast] Icecast2 and SSL certificate renewal

I have a question about current best-practice for renewing SSL certificates for Icecast.
I am looking into automating the renewal process for my SSL certificate using Let’s Encrypt.
However, it’s my understanding that the Icecast server would need to be restarted each time the automatic process takes place (every 3 months) which I think would be disruptive to running a continuous streaming service. 
All the listeners would be kicked off the streams.

I’d like to know if anyone knows of a better solution or if this is just an unavoidable problem in terms of running streams via HTTPS.

Thanks for any help
