Advantages against pasting embed code from soundcloud

  • By changing the main settings in the options, all players on your site using the default settings will change. If green isn't trendy anymore and black is the new white, it won't be a problem and you keep your street credibility safe.
  • If Soundcloud update their player or release a even cooler new player that let you scratch your track while streaming to google+, I will most defenetly update the plugin to use those new features.

That's just my opinion of course...

To Do List

  • v3: So much to do I can't list it.
  • V3: Advance Settings (change background color and comments color, playcounts, buy link, font, wmode, etc, show/hide styled shortcode, number of tracks per page)
  • v3: url attribute for shortcode: easier for people using the shortcode manually.
  • v3: other soundcloud shortcode conflict fix (jetpack)
  • Add Soundcloud default Width to the options
  • Trigger live preview when changing Soundcloud user name
  • Live search while typing a name in the user name field. So if you're looking for someone it's kind of easier.
  • Add 'activities' to a widget
  • Fall Back for smartphone to html5 player when using flash player.
