How do Apps/Websites/RSS add to total play count?

Looking for urgent help. I'm struggling to understand how total plays is made up of Apps/Websites/RSS Feed. For example, total plays is 100, but this number bears no reference to aggregate totals from Apps/Websites/RSS Feed.

Basically, I need to know how many total listens from any kind of SoundCloud portal, and anything for iTunes. Again, the easily identifiable numbers for platforms seem to bear no reference to total plays...

Okay, so I've been searching, and possibly narrowed it down. It looks like RSS plays are counted in total plays. However, if I count all the plays listed in the RSS section, it comes to a different total than the one showing for RSS in Apps. Why the discrepancy? I've read this might be a Mozilla issue - counting plays in SoundCloud twice if they're listened to in Firefox?
