Free Auto Refreshing Internet Radio Listener Count


Recommended Posts

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/firefox/addon/tab-auto-refresh/ Chrome https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/easy-auto-refresh/aabcgdmkeabbnleenpncegpcngjpnjkc?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.

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)?

I'm not sure quite what you mean by format, Do You mean text encoding? I'm not sure because RadioDJ =just uses a .txt file for listener counts, The listeners.txt text is the Docs folder inside the RadioDJ folder.

 

RadioDJ would just pick the info up from that text file with the amount of listeners as a number, The file would need to be output to the users local machine I'd imagine let them choose where to save it.

 

Not able to mock anything up as I'm useless at those sort of things, If you play with the latest version of RDJ and have a look at the history plugin that's the plugin that would read the information.

The latest release of MB Recaster now outputs the listener count from multiple servers to a text file which can be read by the History plugin in RadioDJ

 

So that one solution to this issue

Hi RDJUser,

 

No, I meant what would be required in the .txt file, what data and in what format should it be?

 

Thanks.

I wonder if "anyone" has read the post made by Johny and Me about what is asked by DJboutit into the main topic ??? ...

I am looking for a downloadable program I do not need a script.

Please donwload the setup at this link :

Its a tool as requested who has an easy setup, it shows realtime updates, bitrates, listeners etc etc ...

and you have the choice between Shoutcast V1 & V2 & Icecast

The user can add several different stream IPs ...

Just the listener counts that's all the listeners text file in MB Recaster does...

 

No, I meant what would be required in the .txt file, what data and in what format should it be?

 

I have no idea what format it should be in I thought a text file was just that a text file I know bugger all about formats.

 

I actually think I'm going to promote the hell out of MB Recaster rather than wait for anything else to happen...

 

I don't need listener stats but i know people who do & I think MB Recaster is the best option right now especially if used alongside RadioDJ..
