SoundCloud makes music sharing fast & easy. The platform takes the daily hassle out of receiving, sending & distributing music for artists, record labels & other music professionals.
SoundCloud supports the uploading of AIFF, WAVE, FLAC, OGG, MP2, MP3, AAC, AMR and WMA files.
To embed SoundCloud groups or member track playlists or a single track in your blog explore the SoundCloud website and or use the search to find a sound that you like.
Once you have located a song to embed, look for the Share button. If a track doesn’t have this button you you will not be able to play it outside of the SoundCloud web site.
After clicking the Share button, click WordPress.
