SoundCloud

  • Overview

    The SoundCloud module allows users to import music from soundcloud.com and display it on the profile.

    The imported songs information is stored in a datastore that can then be used to populate lists in other locations around the site.

  • SoundCloud songs are delivered from SoundCloud.com

    These songs are not stored locally on your server, but rather delivered from soundcloud.com when the listener plays them.

    However they do have the feeling of being the same as any audio file that was uploaded directly to your site via the jrAudio module.

    You can list and search on them the same. They will display very similarly. They have a comments section where discussions can take place locally on your server.
  • Profile owners can import multiple songs at once

  • Details exits locally

    Once a song is in your system you can tag it, and comment on it, and do any other functions to it that you would be able to do to a locally uploaded song.

  • To get the info needed for these locations go to:

    and register a new application.

    Give your app a name and register it and you will be given the details you need.
