Simple Stats is an easy-to-use, light-weight statistics plugin that captures the number of plays and downloads your audio receives via the players on your site. There’s no setup needed, the plugin learns about any tracks when they first get played, and displays them in a neat table on your admin side, along with their individual play and download counts.

The plugin never needs to be told when you put new audio on the site, and if you use the same tracks repeatedly then Simple Stats will collate all the hits for you, and will not cause confusing duplication or splitting-out of data.

There’s an option to display each track’s play and/or download statistic on the site. The stats are displayed in the playlist for playlist players, and under the player when using single file players. The stats can be positioned left, centre, or right.

Using the optional threshold, you can choose to ignore plays of less than a specified length.
