When I try and add the URL for my youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClYWrT_SnSuLKkbTRf47iNw to my SoundCloud page, SoundCloud changes the URL to: http://youtube.com/user/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClYWrT_SnSuLKkbTRf47iNw which leads to a page saying the user doesn't exist! Help!

Hi there,

Thank you for reporting this and my sincere apologies about the delay before getting back to you on this one! This used to be a bug on our end, however it has been fixed last week. Can you try adding it again to see if it is working now?

If this still doesn't work for you, please let us know and we'll take another look together.

Cheers,
Mathis
Hi Mathis, I have the same problem.

Whatever you type into the link field - seems to automatically be prefixed with https://www.youtube.com/user

YouTube no longer works with the user field. It would be better if the field did not try to be 'helpful' and just let you paste in a link without it being automatically modified.

Hi there,

Thanks for contributing here. Hmm, let's see - you seem to have figured it out though - when I click the Youtube link from your SoundCloud profile, I get redirected to your Youtube channel properly. Mind sharing what you did to sort this?

Problem NOT fixed, one year after.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLVRzb4UH5sPqX_nR07p_q00uad6V-wfHb becomes http://youtube.com/user/https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLVRzb4UH5sPqX_nR07p_q00uad6V-wfHb

Please correct this.

i just created a soundcloud account and tried to post a link to my showreel on youtube but when you click on the link it says "channel doesn't exist".
i see this has been a problem in the past but you say it has been 'fixed'. but it hasn't because it is happening to me.

the link i am trying to post is
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T41dioPzjV4

but when i paste it into soundcloud, it changes to
https://www.youtube.com/user/https%3A//www.youtube.com/watch?v=T41dioPzjV4

This helps me to fix my problem. Thanks a lot 🙂

Still not fixed in 2019...after taking the steps mentioned in this thread it will work for a short time then go back to same issues. 

Definitely not worth the subscription money for a pro plan i’ve had so many problems like this with soundcloud that just don’t make any sense like how is it so hard to correct these issues 

Everything is ass backwards
