An advice with stream monitor

I have discovered STream monitor few weeks ago. And it seems very usefull for DJs and show from outside of the studio.
I’m looking for some advice. Because, it seems to work. But i’ve got just a little problem as soon as the stream is disconnecting.
I’m not using stream monitor as high priority encoder. Because i don’t use mairlist encoder.
So i’m using action at start and at end.

When the stream is detected, it’s playing a stream in the playout, and the playout is still in auto mode. Everything works perfect without blank.
As soon as I stop the stream, the playout is trying to reload the stream about 10 times . And after the 10th time, it plays the next song. So there is 10 seconds blank.
I don’t manage to find the good way to avoid this blank.

So far, I have only used the stream monitor, with the high priority Input, with Icecast as a source.

I assume, that reconnection of a lost stream, that is a stream element in the Playlist, is the wanted behavior, in case of Connection problems.

What kind of Server are you using, to source the stream to mAirlist?
Do you have any commands set, within the stream monitor, to execute on source lost?

I’m using an icecast server.
On source lost, there is only one action : stop encoder, because I use it to record in a file.

And before using stream monitor, I inserted stream in the playlist.
And after connection lost, mairlist didn’t try to reconnect 10 times.

You can add a second command on stop. „Automation Next“, that should force to skip the stream element.

thanks for this advice but it’s worst.
Automation next doesn’t kill the stream.
So the player try to reload it, and play next song, the stream, the next song, etc…
