hi, it's easy, try that as a start (untested!)
it should display the # of listeners for your first source.
see that status-json.xsl for all variables defined.

	var url = "http://your.server.com:8000/status-json.xsl";
	var getstats = function (url) {
		.fail(function(e) { alert("fail"); })
		.done(function(r) { 

			if(r && r.length > 0) {

				// example: first source 
				var first = r.icestats.source.0;
				var listeners = first.listeners.


		setTimeout(getstats, 10000);
	Listeners: <div id="stats"></div>


> Hi,
> I realise that the web is littered with posts and discussions concerning the topic of getting icecast stats from the xsl files (status-son.xsl) in the icecast web directory. As you may know, many of the solutions are outdated and example links are broken. I have limited knowledge of how to write my own javascript to get this info to display on my own website. Wondering if anyone can refer me to a currently working example or site that explains how to write my own JS to do this? Alternatively, I am happy to pay someone for their time or script.
