[resolved] Soundcloud html5 embed? (2 posts)

    Hi, I'm having a problem embedding soundcloud files. When using the shortcode supplied by soundcloud, it is loading the old flash player instead of the html5 version. I have tried following the instructions here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/audio/soundcloud-audio-player/ but it has been no help. Obviously the flash player renders playback on mobile devices useless.

    Here is an example of the shortcode I'm using:
    [soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/79165248" params="color=642f6c&auto_play=false&show_artwork=true" width=" 100%" height="166" iframe="true" /]

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    We have made some changes to the Soundcloud shortcode, and the changes will be available in the next Jetpack release.

    Once the update is available, the player will fall back to HTML5 on mobile devices.
