Host multiple sound or remix competition all within your wordpress site, integrated with SoundCloud and Facebook voting.
SoundCloud Sound Competition has been created to let you host your own remix competition without thinking about storage space, it's all integrated with SoundCloud so that all remixes are stored there.
Just make your own app in Soundcloud and add the parameters within your settings and you are good to go. You can chose a database slug when a competition has come to an end and you want to start another one, this creates a new competition. The plugin uses OAuth2 so your Soundcloud account details are not stored for the plugin to gain access.
Also supporting Facebook secure voting and multi language.
Checkout the website - http://lightdigitalmedia.com/wordpress-plugins/soundcloud-sound-competition/
Once installed, the authorization process is easy:
When you first access the plugin’s options page, you will have to fill in setting of you app.
To create an app in Soundcloud go here: http://soundcloud.com/you/apps, after logging in you should get the putton "Create new application"
After making a name for your app you will get all the information to fill in there. Copy and past all the information into your plugin settings in wordpress in the appropriate fields matching names.
In WordPress create a page for your Remix SoundCloud registration and put in the wordpress code there.
The URL of the page you created in 4. type this in your app http://soundcloud.com/you/apps where it says: Redirect URI, this is where SoundCloud redirects after connecting.
