    I added a text widget to my sidebar, and placed the soundcloud shortcode in the text widget.
    [soundcloud]https://soundcloud.com/songsformovies/sets/instrumental[/soundcloud]

    on the live site, in the sidebar (below my slideshow) is the actual shortcode but no player, im not sure what im doing wrong

    pretty important piece of this installation missing from the instructions.

    this line: add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

    needs to be added to the themes functions.php file in order for short codes to work in a widget.

    My player now appears (still not working but that might be another issue.)
