Where can I put the Fallback stream

I'm pretty sure the monetization stream allows for a fallback file to be played in the event that the station goes down for some reason? Where can I upload this and who to?

Solved

Found it.

How to setup your fallback file?

One of the important features of the SHOUTcast Streaming Service is the ability to upload a file which will play in the event the connection from your encoder is lost temporarily (due to power outage, internet issue etc). The file will instantly start playing for your listeners if the servers stop receiving audio from you. It will continue to play and repeat until we receive a reliable signal from your encoder once again.

To activate this function, go to your settings at rmo.shoutcast.com. Under Settings > Streams > %StreamName% > Fallback File, you'll see a setting for "Set Fallback". Upload a backup file here (we suggest at least an hour in length). During the upload process, there is no "progress bar" but your browser should show the upload process at the bottom of your screen. Note: that the format and the bitrate of the file need to be the same as your stream (128k for most stations) in order to activate.

After you have successfully uploaded the file, please wait an hour for it to load and be configured. Then test the file: listen to the stream while you disconnect your encoder. The Fallback file should play automatically. When you reconnect the encoder, the stream will return to regular programming.

I'm streaming ok, but since around 11am BST the stream stopped and putting out our fallback file instead. I've checked everything, is it a problem at the Shoutcast end?
