Hi Quba,

Thanks for posting! Whether or not you can embed the SoundCloud player on a forum actually depends on how the forum is set up. If it supports BB Codes, the administrator can set up a BB Code for SoundCloud in order to enable compatibility for the embedded player. Here's what you would need to pass on to your forum admin(s) to get this going:

1) Go to your Admin Control Panel, then click on Add New BB code option under Custom BB Codes. 2) Enter the following info into the form fields:

(Some implementations might use {param} instead of {content} - refer to the documentation if you’re unsure)
3) Include a Button Image. (Note: this is optional but you should upload that image to your own server and host it from here)

4) Here's the how it should all look:



5) Now, click Save and that's it! Your users will have a SoundCloud button in their post forms now. They simply click on the cloud button and paste their track URL address.



Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Mathis

For years we've used the following method to embed Soundcloud into our vBulletin forum:

<object height="81" width="100%"><param name="movie" value="http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url={param}&amp;g=bb"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed allowscriptaccess="always" height="81" src="http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url={param}&amp;g=bb"; type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100%"></embed></object> <a href="{param}">{param}</a>

This is no longer working since Soundcloud stopped supporting Flash.

How can I use the new player in a similar fashion?

Kind Regards,
Dirk

Hi Dirk,

Thanks for getting in touch. I've merged yours with another convo on the forum where I've explained how to set this up a while ago. Hope this helps!

Thanks Mathis, I got that working.

Is it possible to show the wav image on the player (like it was before) so that users can click in the wav to play another part of the audio file?

Cheers,

Dirk
