Stream backup URL not working


From the documentation it's a bit unclear to me how streambackupurl should work. In my case I would like to point all the streams without a source to a single stream. So when a listener tries to connect to a stream without active source he would be redirected to the default stream.

However I'm not able to get this work, paying for premium, running the latest DNAS.

Only thing I see in the logfile related to this is "Stream backup URL not allowed"

Listener gets treated like in the normal source down situation.

What am I doing wrong?

I think something's wonky with Shoutcast in general lately, because I, as a music/internet radio listener, can't simply click on the "play" icon in the Winamp player, nor click on the download pls file, to get the station to load and play automatically in Winamp. I have to manually copy the stream URL and paste it into "play URL" in the file menu. That's the only way I've been able to stream and listen to Shoutcast stations for the last 3 days since I had to reinstall Winamp on my computer. But I have issues with the Shoutcast website as well.
