As SoundCloud recently hit 5 million users, blogger’s pleas for us to support the service grew too strong to ignore and we’ve added support for detecting embeds.
The info will show up as a track under the post in the same way as a music file.
There is a caveat: SoundCloud still doesn’t support artist meta info. What does this mean to you? If the SoundCloud account doesn’t belong to the artists, themselves, the “title” of the track should be Artist Name – Track Title. One space is required on either side of the dash. This is mainly for labels who upload many tracks by many different artists.
There still may be issues. Guessing the artist and title is a shitty way to do it, but that’s what SoundCloud gives us. I’m hoping they add an artist meta to the api at some point, but who knows.
