Hi there,

Thanks for getting in touch. I just shared the same track and was able to play it normally from my Facebook timeline. Can you give it a try in another browser? If the problems still persists, then can you please describe the steps you are taking to produce this error?

Hopefully we can get this solved quickly for you!

Best,
Gina

Hi Gina,

I see this issue has become much worse since the original post a year ago, because SC has now removed the embedded player feature when sharing to FB. Now whenever I share my tracks, my friends complain that they "can't play it" and I have to tell them they need a SC account these days.

So it seems SC has not just made things more difficult, but doubly difficult... 1) no more embedded player shares, and 2) people with no SC account can't even play the track by clicking the link!

On top of SC deactivating the ability for people to leave comments when using the mobile app... I barely see the point of SC any more. Who makes these terrible decisions?
looking for another way of sharing my music sound cloud now sucks no one trust a link that opens another page to many viruses and hacks out there bring back the player
Sound Cloud what is up with your silence on this. I been using SC for years. I found my way here through a google search as I couldn't work out why I am unable to post embedded tracks on my FB page. Thats how I roll. Apparently after reading the other comments I'm not alone. I guess its time to seek another platform if one exists.
I never got the number of listens I used to have. Nobody likes opening links outside of facebook especially when using mobile. I don't think we're going to get a solution anytime soon. Might as well look for other venues for sharing our music.
Soundcloud is a DISSAPOINTMENT!!!
THIS IS THE MAIN REASON I STARTED USING SOUND CLOUD AND NOW IT DOES NOT WORK, GOOD WORK FUCKING UP MY MUSICAL CARER SOUND CLOUD
same problem and noticed the last track I posted doesn't have next or near the amount of listens I would normally get. people will not link to a new site to listen to tracks. they want the ability to just hit play when it pops up on its feed. SIMPLE. the way it used to be. SC sucks

Why is this thread marked as "solved" in first place?

Nice technical assistance SC, ignoring your users for one year already.
Here is the answer from Soundcloud, http://help.soundcloud.com/customer/portal/articles/873324-how-do-i-share-to-facebook- it is just another sketchy growth hacking trick.
Who knows Platforms that can do embed player in FB like soundcloud before?
If i knew it was gonna take so long , i would have learned programing and fixed it 2 years ago.
Is this gonna take 5 more years to fix it, or should i start learning programing?

if this is not fixed im leaving the platform, im a paid user since 5 years, this is unacceptable
Yea thanks sound cloud! for becoming less functional, who needs simple useful functions like that. pepole are so spoiled these days, "wahhhh i want embedding, embedding is broken wahhhh...". bunch whiners! I don't even know what embedding does probably something useless any way, so much whining about nothing!
i dont understand why this is issue is so confusing to sc, WE ARE NOT HAVING ISSUES SHARING. THAT IS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TASK FROM WHICH THE OP IS POSTING HIS CONCERN OVER, THE ISSUE IS SIMPLE THE EMBED CODE THAT ALLOWS A CLICKABLE PLAYER TO PLAY WITHIN FB IS NOT WORKING, YOU CAN ONLY DUBUG A URL NOT AN EMBED CODE, WE DO NOT WANT LINKS TO OUR SONGS ....FORCING PEOPLE TO GO TO YOUR WEBSITE TO VIEW OUR TRACKS......IT HAS BEEN PROVEN THAT LESS PEOPLE WANT TO LEAVE ONE SITE AND GO TO ANOTHER SITE JUST TO HEAR A SONG.........THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED! SO MANY PEOPLE ARE HAVING THIS ISSUE AND NO WHERE IS THERE A SOLID RESPONCE FROM SC TO AS HOW TO FIX IT......WE ARE NOT SEEING THE WRONG IMAGE WE ARE EMBEDDING YOUR VISUAL PLAYER AND THE ONLY THING THAT ENDS UP POSTING IS A BOX THAT SAYS SOUNDCLOUD WIDGET AND RAW CODE .....THAT IS THE ISSUE PLAIN AND SIMPLE, IT USED TO WORK BUT NOW NOTHING, NO MATTER WHAT WE DO....DEBUGGING IS FOR WHEN YOU MAKE A CHANGE TO A TRACK AFTER YOU POSTED IT ALREADY TO FACEBOOK, BECAUSE SOMETIMES FACEBOOK DOESNT RECOGNIZE THE CHANGE SO YOU DEBUG THE LINK TO THE TRACK AND IT WILL THEN FIX THE ISSUE.......THIS IS REGARDING SPECIFICALLY THE IN POST VISUAL PLAYER THROUGH THE EMBED OPTION NOT WORKING, ANY REAL HELP WOULD BE AWESOME....THANKS!
Same issue here, I think I will simply stop my subscription to SC.
no response from SC? Why? same issue...

That's so sad... No response from the SC team making of this a complete joke. There are so many people wanting to share their tracks without forcing the public to be redirected to another page. Is it so hard to have the previous player back? C'mon guys!
New SoundCloud Pro user with the same issue
same issue....
oh dear Sound Cloud : /
I also came here because of the exact same issue. I feel sad that I cannot post the player directly to FB as once used to be the case (even without a SC account).

It would really be awesome if this was "fixed".

Everyone remembers fondly how the previous, simple system worked, please SC, can you fix it?
">Can this be done without sharing everything I post on SC? And for some reason I don't see the FB share icon.
That really sucks that you took the facebook capability away. People are far less likely to goto another page to listen verses clicking play and hearing the music. I understand that you all want the web traffic directed to your site..... but you are now forcing people to go back to youtube.com to have more listeners. I guess thats where I will be posting future music...............
Im having the same issue. I would like for the listener to be able to listen to my song directly from my FB not be redirected to the SC page
People still can't play my songs without being redirected to the soundcloud page. This is frustrating... The SC player widget no longer appears on my facebook timeline like it used to.

The same issue is now on Google+. I think this is a active decision by SC due to copy right laws.
