Select Icecast from the Server Type dropdown.
Icecast can have any custom URL, but the default STATS endpoint is /status-json.xsl
Example of a multi-channel Icecast (this is an example, not a real radio):
Icecast page (not required in settings):
Icecast json URL:
Icecast channel: 1
Icecast mountpoint: not required
Verify your stats URL
You should open your /stats-json.xsl URL in your browser, and you should see something like this:
The standard endpoint for the Icecast stats page is /stats-json.xsl, but some can use:
As any streaming provider can use a custom URL.
If you don’t know the correct Icecast status json URL, you need to ask to your streaming provider (your broadcasting provider), as the address can be anything, like
so, if you don’t know the exact stats URL of your Icecast channel, only your provider can give you this information.
Icecast mountpoint and channels
Some Icecast formats use different moutpoint URLs for the data, some others use always the same URL, containing the song titles of every channel.
There is no fixed standard for this, as it’s up to the system administrator, so you may need to check the structure of your feed to find the right settings.
This is an example of a multi-channel icecast page
To know the correct settings, you can open the stats file, copy the json output and paste it on jsonviewer
Example of the
In this example, there is no mountpoint required, but there are multiple channels. You can set the numeric channel ID of the right song titles in your channel settings.
- If you can’t see the titles, the first thing to do is to verify the status-json.xsl page. Open it in the browser, and make sure you can see the Json data (see screenshots above)
- If your website is HTTPS and your stream is HTTP, you generally cannot display titles, nor listen to the music. In this case you may want to put the site in http or change streaming provider.
- If the protocol is ok, and you see the json data, but still no title appears, your provider may be blocking the access because of wrong Cross Origin Resource Sharing policies (CORS).
This means that your Icecast server is missing a little line of code that allows your website to read the song titles.
In this case, you can try the proxy (make sure your web server allows it) and/or eventually ask to your streaming provider to enable the CORS policies on the server (thish is how it should be)
- If your stream is HTTPS, your website is HTTPS and your Icecast page is HTTP, you generally cannot display titles without using the proxy.
It would be much better if you use a streaming provider that gives you HTTPS access, but you can also try our proxy (enable the proxy in the channel settings).
- If the proxy doesn’t work either, please ask your website hosting provider (where you bought your domain and/or hosting) to make sure that your website can connect, server side, to the port of the shoutcast channel.In the example above, the channel is 8000, so you need to verify with your website server provider that your site can connect, server side via cUrl, using the port 8000.
- If your streaming provider has an HTTPS stream but the certificate is invalid, your browser will refuse the connection, for obvious security restrictions. You can verify this condition by opening the https url of your Streaming page on the browser.
