ive searched the forum but no luck.
i want to have a html page where users can go and see how many users are listening and what song is playing
how is this done?
Do you have the ability to run scripts (such as php) on your webserver?
You can always give a link to http://IP:PORT (where IP is the broadcasting IP and PORT is the port) but there are other ways which I'll let you know about when we determine what approach needs to be taken.

no i cant run php on my server..only cgi and SSI
so what happens now?
Well if you know how to code you can write something to extract the XML from the DNAS (so far I have only see code floating around for php or asp). Since you want the songs as well as the listeners the only tool that comes to mind that is able to do that is DoSomething by Oddsock (I have heard it is fairly complex though). Right now his page is down (so I can't give you a direct link) but when it comes back up again you can find it off http://www.oddsock.org

hey er, just to update you guys - the support for that feature (no. of listeners, etc.) is gone already - due to some problems... (see his site for more details).
Anyway, it only works (or worked) for live365 streams....
Are you sure about that? I am no expert on the subject but I thought it had the ability to extract data from the XML in the SHOUTcast DNAS.

Yes indeedy, Do Something is capable of using XML data from SHOUTcast. I don't believe it can get an accurate listener count from a Live365 server anymore (legal problems), but there's a pretty comprehensive list of XML tags you can use with Do Something in the readme file or here (http://www.oddsock.org/tools/dosomething/).
