Limiting Downloads

Hello there, I have a question about downloads.

Is it possible to disable downloads on my uploads for non-registered users?
Whenever I check my stats around 90% of users who download are non-registered users, so I get no stats from that, which is somewhat annoying. I would rather have it so that only registered users can download so I can get the stats.

I know it's a bit nitpicky, but still.

Thank you in advance, sincerely, XionsProphecy.

how are you not getting stats?

from the stats page:
To ensure your stats load quickly, only the top 50 signed-in people display here. Remaining plays, and those from non-signed-in people display as “Other people”.

listens and downloads are counted registered user or not 🙂

Whereas streaming is possible anonymously, downloads on SoundCloud.com are only possible when a user is logged in. This hasn't always been the case, but works like this for quite a few months now, so you should see data about this if you're on the relevant Pro subscription.

Cheers
Mathis
