    Hello!

    So, I joined the Fractal Forums the other day and there's a neat feature that allows you to embed Soundcloud clips into posts, much like we embed YouTube videos here.

    Here's an example:

    Ambient Metal situations!

    Could be a cool little feature which would also make it easier for us all to get songs/demo's listened to, I know a few people get frustrated with lack of response sometimes. Sometimes people are too lazy to even click on a link...

    Anyway, I wondered if this could be a possibility here.

    Cheers

    I agree, this would be very handy.

    I've seen it done before, I just have no idea how to do it. Hopefully someone who spends a lot of time in the recording studio section will chime in

    Soundcloud has an embed link but for some reason it only works 95% of the time so most users don't bother anymore.

    Edit: Just noticed down the bottom the forum has html code turned off which is the problem, usually things offer a bbcode alternative, but not soundcloud :(

    If alex wants to add a [soundcloud] tag, the tutorial for that is on Soundclouds dev blog

    Yeah I've kinda always wondered why SSO doesn't have it, every other forum has had it and for quite a while too.

    It used to support Soundclick, but even that's fallen by the wayside.
