Using Soundcloud in WordPress

If you’re a Soundcloud user and want to play your tracks in your WordPress.com blog, here’s how to do it:  Just copy the link location from the “download” button on your soundcloud player and paste it into your WordPress visual editor (not the code editor). You need to add the usual WP code to it so you get, eg:

[a u d i o http://soundcloud.com/band/song/download]

Obviously, you’ll need no gaps in the word audio!

So it should look like this:

http://soundcloud.com/mistrust/pitch-black-rude-mechanicals-mistrust-remix/download

Publish your WP post and then view it. The standard WP flash player appears (the one with the speaker and the play icon).

You’d think that you would need a .mp3 extension, but you don’t! Also, you don’t get a Soundcloud player in your blog. Have a look here to see it in action properly:

It works!

Thanks to Soundcloud.com for hosting my tracks.
