SoundCloud embeds on my WordPress.com blog play great on my PC using Google Chrome but produce no sound on my iPhone 4S with iOS 7.0.4. Have installed SoundCloud app on my phone. Am able to play song streams on iPhone at SoundCloud site but not on the SoundCloud embeds on my blog.

Hi there,

Thanks for visiting the help forum. Couple of questions for you, are you using the SoundCloud plugin and if you are, did you chose the Flash option? Flash is not supported by Apple so if you did select Flash then this is why the embed does not work on your iPhone.

If you are not sure if you selected Flash then send me over a link to your blog and I can check it out for you.

Cheers,
Gina
Gina,

Thanks for your response. Unlike in WordPress.org, WordPress.com does not provide the option to use the SoundCloud plugin, so am unable to choose or not choose the Flash option. My blog link is https://altpeek.wordpress.com/

Hi smb72,

Sorry about the confusion here & thanks for sending over the link to your blog. I've tested this with an iPhone over here ow and was able to see and listen to your most recently embedded track just fine (Metz: Acetate). The phone I was using is on iOS8 already though. When trying this with the iOS7 browser agent though, it was providing similar results.

Can you try and download Chrome for iOS to see if it is working in another browser on your phone please?

Looking forward to hearing from you again.

Cheers
Mathis
