Icecast is a streaming media (audio/video) server which is used to create an Internet radio station or a privately running jukebox and many things in between. It is very versatile in that new formats can be added relatively easily and supports open standards for communication and interaction (currently supports Ogg Vorbis and Ogg Theora, Opus, WebM and MP3 streams).

With Matomo (Piwik) you can get awesome analytics for your IceCast multimedia streams:

  • A community plugin IcecastStatistics lets you connect to Icecast and import key metrics into your Matomo dashboard.
  • We also recommend that you track how people use your Audio player on your website, with the official Media Analytics for Matomo. ​​​​​​​​When you embed your audio file, we recommend you set a title HTML attribute on your <audio> elements so that Media Analytics can detect the media title and give you detailed insights about how users consume your radio.

  • Finally, if you have access to the IceCast server logs, you may also import the IceCast logs in Matomo using our Log Analytics solution.
