Administrative helpers for an icecast server

Build Status


use Audio::Icecast;

# Using the default configuration

my $icecast = Audio::Icecast.new;

for $icecast.stats.source -> $source {
    say "listeners for { $source.mount }";
    for $icecast.listeners($source) -> $listener {
        say "\t",$listener.ip;


This provides a simple interface to the admin interface of an icecast server. You can get the statistics, information about the mount points and do most of the things that you can do through the web UI.

The API itself is quite thin as the icecast server doesn't do much more than stream audio from a source quite efficiently.

Some features such as static mounts and alternative authentication mechanisms can only be enabled via the configuration file and not dynamically, if you want more control over the streams at runtime then you might consider using a streaming middleware such as liquidsoap in conjunction with your icecast server.

You probably should at least familiarise yourself with the icecast documentation before making serious use of this module.


You can install this module using zef :

zef install Audio::Icecast

Or if you have the source code locally:

zef install .


This isn't very complicated but the interactions with the server are quite difficult to test without introducing a bunch more dependencies. You'll have to take my word for it that I tested against a local icecast server with actual sources and clients :)

Anyhow if you have any suggestions or feedback feel free to post them at (github)[https://github.com/jonathanstowe/Audio-Icecast/issues] or even better send a pull request.

This is free software, please see the LICENCE file in the distribution.
