Coming up: Soundcloud embeddable player

WORK-IN-PROGRESS post testing the Soundcloud embeddable player. Idea is to provide the embed code so people can put the recordings on their own blogs and websites.

This uses their artwork player, where you can upload your own image to use as the background. The central orange play button appears as standard, luckily it can be incorporated into the Survey’s bullseye logo.


A slight softening of the original image occurs at the Soundcloud end. Changing image file formats or uploading images double the required size makes no difference. By the way, the big-brand-name webwasher at work blocks the player because it classifies Soundcloud as a filesharing website.

Next task, making an overlay function with JQuery Tools.
