    Free Auto Refreshing Internet Radio Listener Count

    This might work for some people signup to this free site http://www.amptracker.com/ leave the tab on your stats page then get a auto page refresh plugin Firefox https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...-auto-refresh/ Chrome https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...ngjpnjkc?hl=en Now you can refresh the stats page every 60 90 100 or 120 seconds. I bet if you refresh this page every 75 to 100 seconds for the whole month I bet it would use 3gb to 10gb of bandwidth a month. This might not be a good idea if you only have one comptuer and have to have your radio station automation software visable on the screen most of the time.

    I am looking for a free standalone program to get listener count other than Radio Toolbox anybody know of anything??

    Depending on what type of server you are running, you can run a simple PHP script on your webserver and run a cronjob. Or if you want something serverless, try running a node.js script (e.g. https://www.npmjs.com/package/node-internet-radio).

    If you are concerned about bandwidth, the JS route will be far less resource intensive.

    Not sure there are any downloadable programs out there.
    What do you aim to do with the listener count? Is it just for viewing on the computer?

    Correct for a easy way to keep track of how many listeners are connected to my stream.

    I remember years ago writing a small bit of software in Visual Basic to grab Shoutcast stats from three of our streams and presenting them in the corner of a screen, was written for Windows based PC's. Wonder if there is still a need for that...

    There is a great need for people to gather stats properly from all their servers I see requests for it regular on the RadioDJ forums.

    If You could write an application that gathers stats from multiple servers that outputs the data to a text file that could then be used with the history plugin in RadioDJ as the history plugin is what gathers those stats but it does that from the afore mentioned text file.

    There really isn't a lot of software around that does this (unless your a SAM user using statistic relays)

    It would help people greatly when reporting actual listener figures to the relevant people.

    What format would the text file require? Could you mock up an example? Also, where would the file need to be outputted to? Local (on your machine)?
