Just bought the Pro plan so I can embed the mini player in my website, but I'm not seeing that option/html code when I click on the embed button. Am I looking in the wrong place?

Hi, yes it's a tricky system, but I'll try to explain. You first have to go to your track page e.g https://soundcloud.com/outerbass-records/who-is-this-i
Then go to the edit page, which you can access with the little pencil icon just underneath the waveform to the left. When your on the edit page, switch your settings for that track to 'private'. This will only be for a brief moment because you will switch it back to 'public' afterwards.
Then go back to the track page and click on the share icon, next to the pencil icon.
The share window should then open with 3 headings, share, embed, and message. Now click on 'embed', and voila, there should be your code.
If you don't first switch to 'private', you won't find it. Then when your done, switch settings back to 'public'.
Hope this helps. If it does, you might also enjoy my Ethnic Fusion music https://soundcloud.com/twistedyogi

OK, that works for individual tracks, BUT, I still do not have the ability to embed a mini-player for a playlist. I'm sure it's possible since I've seen it on websites.

Hi there John,

The mini player is currently only available for individual tracks, not for playlists - sorry about the confusion here. Now, if you upgraded for this particular reason and would rather not upgrade, we do offer a 30-day money back guarantee. You can cancel your subscription by logging into your account and going here: https://soundcloud.com/settings/plan, where you will see the "Stop Automatic Renewing" option.

Hope this helps to shed some light on this.

Cheers,
Mathis
Bummer - still good to be able to use the mini-player even with that restriction. I needed the extra space so the upgrade is still a necessary thing for me.

As a solution I ended up just stacking the mini-players for individual songs and was able to use it that way. Any idea when this might be an option (I swear I've seen it in use on several large music and music sample sites)?

Thanks for the response!

Hi JM,

Sorry no current time frame that we can offer now.

the way i understand it the mini player is very small. the old ones i embedded were just a small btn (maybe 18x18 pixels) that expanded to a timeline when clicked (18 x maybe 300px).

i can't find anything like that now. even with the pro upgrade. i needed to change some of the arguments in the code but it still does not match the old mini player. so on my site i have 2 different players and one is pretty ugly.

ideas? thanks

Hi there cporro,

Thanks for following up on this & apologies about the delay in responding. The mini player is only available for Pro Unlimited users at this point. There are currently no immediate plans to make this available to Pro plan users as well.

I wish there was an alternative I could offer to you right here and now - sorry about that. I'll make sure to pass on your feedback to the relevant product team.

All the best,
Mathis

thanks mathis. i found conflicting info on the mini player. i wasn't clear if the current pro plan offered it. it does and i've upgraded. the new mini nearly matches the old mini i used a few years back.

this is bullshit, because the mini player still works using older generated code.

Can anyone give me the mini player embed code? I'm planning to start a blog and I need the code for the players.

there isnt one now as the slimmy kents have done away with it against everyones wishes,there should be a mass money back claim from everyone whos paid,cos majority used there account for the embedded player

Thank you for this. Very helpful work around. I'm pretty inexperienced with html coding. Any chance you could take a look at the code below and integrate our link into what you've written?

I too have a website but I haven't used the mini player embed code in my website till date. How to use that code to on my website (https://beetvapp.com/) which is related to movie site but would like to provide music as well as I am going to purchase the pro version of the sound cloud.
