I pay for the pro account and use it to try to spread my music to more people. However:
Whenever I post a link to my music on any internet site, if the person viewing the link on a mobile phone or tablet tries to stream my music from the link, they are not able to because they are instantly diverted to the appstore to install the Soundcloud app. There appears to be no way to get around this.
Myself, and my friends who have Souncloud accounts with their original music, are losing visits because of this.
I can't seem to find a way to disable this behaviour, so can you please tell me how to disable this, so that people who want to hear my music can do so directly from a link without having to be redirected to install an app?
Thanks in advance.

I'll try and clarify our new optimization for embedded players:
Until recently, embedded players weren't optimized for mobile devices. This means, depending on the device, track, or website, words were sometimes cropped out, buttons too small to be tapped and images shrunk out of sight. Our team redesigned the embedded players with more attention to how it might be used in a mobile setting. The update serves visual and classic players as well as playlists, and gives the track artwork more attention, while ensuring buttons are easily clickable.
Please note that there is currently no option to bypass our new optimization, we hope you understand. That being said, this message should not impede users from accessing the content you are embedding.
There should be no problem for users to be able to listen to these tracks by either:
• hitting 'Play on SoundCloud' which will cause them to be redirected to the app store in order to download the app, an in the case they download it, they would have to come back to your web page and hit 'Play on SoundCloud' again to be redirected to that track directly on the app
• hitting 'Listen in browser', which would simply redirect to that track directly on the browser
Hope this helps clarify!
