8tracks is handcrafted internet radio. It offers a simple way for people to share and discover music through an online mix, a short playlist containing at least 8 tracks.
Embedding with a Shortcode
To embed music from 8tracks you need to use a shortcode. You can do this by first copying the audio URL.
Then create a shortcode using the format below. Be sure to replace the URL listed here with the URL of your audio, and the code is on a line by itself.
The 8tracks audio player also has some customizations options that you can use. These customization options are optional.
height: Pick a number. Default is 250.
width: Pick a number. Default is 300.
playops: Can be set to “shuffle”, “autoplay”, or “shuffle+autoplay”.
For example, this shortcode:
[8tracks url="http://8tracks.com/smurph/hipster-swag" height="500" width="600" playops="shuffle"]
produces an audio player which is larger than the default player and the tracks are shuffled.
