Hi again,

You can authenticate the users using a web page. Check:

For instance look at listener_add and listener_remove. That way you can
insert into a database each time a listener connects and disconnects,
and combining that with the username let's you have a clear log of how
long each user were listening to a stream.

If I understood your use case correctly..?
