[Icecast] Pyhton Class/library for Icecast 2.32 Stats and other info access?

Hi, if i am not mistaken 2.4 has a servlet which provides json output for
active mounts and stats.

You can check it out at http://your host:8000/status-json.xsl

Just upgrade your version and you should be fine.

In a search for access to various ways to interact with Icecast via
Python, I ran across this:


Which is now dead (404).

I have a need to be able to query an Icecast Server and get the number of
listeners for a mount. I need to do this via Python, and preferably with
out scraping the stats page of Icecast to do so. If there was access to
other data that would be a plus, but a simple means to call a Python
function and get an integer back with this value would be a plus.

Is there something else out there to do this with out scraping a page?

Python is the only route at this time due to the nature of other code
involved which is already done in Python, and far to advanced to rewrite
at this point, and is only supported on Python due to the underlying
hardware used.
