So I updated my Kodi to the latest version Krypton a few days ago. The soundcloud plugin from bromix was working for maybe 2 days and after that it didn't show my account or playlists. I if enter my username and password again it gives me invalid_grant and sometimes http 403 error. Does anybody know how to fix this?

I'm experiencing the same issue. Krypton was installed on my Raspberry Pi 2 two months ago and Soundcloud worked pretty fine. Two days ago, the app disconnected by itself and show me 'invalid_grant' when I tried to reconnect...
I've seen somewhere else that switching to another skin may help. I'll try it this evening.

Authentication and search seem to be broken on the bromix kodi soundcloud plugin. I took a look at the code and was able to (mostly) fix search, but auth is still posing some problems. I just disabled the prompt for the user to login. The master branch of my git repo has those changes: https://github.com/ukigumoh/plugin.audio.soundcloud

Pretty much you can browse and search tracks/artists/playlists.
hopefully a moderator can forward this on to a support technician. it seems as if the creator of this SoundCloud app "bromix" has been unreachable for quite some time and any hopes of him responding are unrealistic. this application uses client_id "40ccfee680a844780a41fbe23ea89934". is it possible for a support technician to verify if all requirements on the associated account or application are satisfactory to continue using the API using client_id "40ccfee680a844780a41fbe23ea89934" ? it is possible that the creator of the SoundCloud app has not logged into SoundCloud in a very long time and has not accepted any recent EULAs, etc. that might be necessary to continue using the API for this app.

the community using this SoundCloud app is very large and seeing as the creator and developer of our add-on has seemingly abandoned the project without leaving recourse for recovering the SoundCloud app for future development, we are hoping that SoundCloud can work with us as a community to help keep our add-on alive.

some details around our add-on and how we are using the SoundCloud API:

Our API wrapper is written in Python, it is custom coded.
Our API wrapper provides the following context to the /oauth2/token endpoint using POST multipart form-data parameters:

client_id=40ccfee680a844780a41fbe23ea89934
client_secret=26a5240f7ee0ee2d4fa9956ed80616c2
grant_type=password
username=USERNAME
password=PASSWORD
scope=non-expiring

Our wrapper cannot use the /connect endpoint as we do not have a viable web-browser available to display the credentials page. Our add-on is client side only and does not have a web-service to recover or store authorization codes.
I still can't share from a Kodi remote (Yatse) to Kodi...
Should be fixed in v3.0.1.
Hi,Thanks for your revised addon, we use it almost daily. your bugfix with the 30 minutes will now work too.Is there a way that you can edit the saved search, or delete it individually?


Hi, it is currently not possible to edit the search history. But the search history is saved in a JSON file that can be edited. (/userdata/addon_data/plugin.audio.soundcloud/search_history.json)

I created an issue for editing the search history here: https://github.com/jaylinski/kodi-addon-soundcloud/issues/30

Thanks :)

 

regards aaron

I have same issue on osmc & windows 10
I think the problem relates to Client_ID & Client_Secret on this file:

~/.kodi/addons/plugin.audio.soundcloud/resources/lib/content/client.py

CLIENT_ID = '40ccfee680a844780a41fbe23ea89934'
CLIENT_SECRET = '26a5240f7ee0ee2d4fa9956ed80616c2'

unfortunately soundcloud will no longer be processing API application requests through this page:

https://soundcloud.com/you/apps

so I can't test changing this values solve this problem or not.
anyone has different soundcloud CLIENT_ID & CLIENT_SECRET?
I am also having the same issue. Anyone have the solution please?
Do you have a Windows PC? Install Kodi from the Store. Then configure Soundcloud so it works as expected. Quit Kodi and then look for the settings.xml in the folder:

C:\users\youraccount\appdata\roaming\Kodi\userdata.

Look for the Soundcloud plugin folder there. It should have the working settings.xml
My problem was mainly that few weeks ago I could not "share" Soundcloud tracks from Kodi remote (Yatse) into Kodi to play them.
Replacing CLIENT_ID and CLIENT_SECRET solve it for me but the real trick was to find the correct values.

I found that by using web browser dev tools (F12), searching for Soundcloud URL (that is actually blocked but it doesn't matter) and dissecting the secret and ID and following replacing the values in my .kodi/addons/plugin.audio.soundcloud/resources/lib/content /client.py worked.

Just copy the URL(marked in red) to a text editor, dissect the values (= and & are the separators), replace them in the script and restart Kodi and Voila!

client_id is the ID
sc_a_id is the secret

Well..

got my hopes up too high.

Installed Kodi on my macbook. installed soundcloud, but still got the invalid grant error.. damm I'm pissed....
Should be working again with the new 3.0.0 version:

I have changed the settings.xml manually (added my uid and pwd), but somehow the addon clears the uid and pwd entry in settings.xml.

does somebody know how to get by this??
The 'pass's were left over from the original plugin. I rip em out whenever I'm working near them.

I second lwrcase - if we can get some more info on the client secret/id or have a new one issued that'd be great. Until then I don't know how much I can do about the auth being broken 😕

Hi there,

Hmm, sorry, I'm unfamiliar with the plugin you're referring to, but it sounds like this might be out of my scope as it wasn't developed by SoundCloud but a 3rd party. Have you been able to contact the developer maybe? Are you still able to sign in with your credentials from a desktop web browser to make sure you can sort out your account details being the root cause? Let the community know 🙂

Thanks for the steps to install. I can confirm I can at least search now.
Still (or again?) getting “invalid_grant“ error when trying to use the plugin 😞
