Soundcloud Blues

Every Friday Miaaw publishes a new podcast, and every Friday at 12:34 UTC I check to make sure it has spread across the web like the cultural virus it aspires to emulate.

Today, just as I noticed the time, Sasa from Pixelache messaged me to tell me it had not appeared. It only showed as a box claiming not to have found the file.

Thirty minutes of exploration later and I had discovered that (sometime this week presumably, since last Friday’s podcast worked just fine) Soundcloud have added a small chunk to their embed code which I needed to add to my php.

The good news: I suddenly realised that I could display the Soundcloud play box in two different ways: one on the front page and one on the pages for the individual episodes.

Now back to my scheduled work…
