Inconsistent appearance of embedded Soundcloud playlist player

Good afternoon,

On my website, I have three instances of the embedded Soundcloud playlist payer
There are two instances on the page Audiobooks and on instance on the page Narrations.
There are no issues on the Narrations page.

For the Audiobooks page, I see the following issues.

  • On both playlists, the xml instruction &show_user=false seems to be ignored, allowing my Soundcloud username to be shown for each track. I use the same command for the embedded player on the Narrations page where the instruction seems to work

  • On the playlist for Selected excerpts, the instruction &amp:download=true seems to be ignored, while the same command works for the Demo tracks list.

Per an earlier note, I have access the webpage code via “Inspect Element…Console” and found only the following information…

Font from origin ‘’ has been blocked from loading by Cross-Origin Resource Sharing policy: No ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ header is present on the requested resource. Origin ‘’ is therefore not allowed access.
widget-1da8eedd.js:34 ‘webkitURL’ is deprecated. Please use ‘URL’ instead.

Can you please help me resolve these issues?


Hi @tjdanko, Can you please update your post with some more information so we can help you faster? Things like your read-only link, screenshots, and your environment info really speed things up.

Posting guidelines can be found here: Posting Guidelines for the Design Help Category

Thanks in advance! :slight_smile:

Per your request, the red-only link is…

My environment specification are…

Intel Core i7 3.50 GhZ
Asus Z87 Pro motherboard
32GB real memory
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Service Pack 1
Firefox 37.0.1 and Chrome 41.0.2272.118 m
Note the symptoms appear in both Firefox and Chrome

Here is a snapshot from the Audiobooks page of my site, showing my Soundcloud username in each track, which is what I wish to eliminate on this page

Here is a snapshot from the Narrations page, showing the absence of the Soundcloud username in each track


Hi @tjdanko, thanks for the info. I was looking at this, and I think you need to update the embed code you have currently on the AudioBooks page. Currently I see you have soundcloud widget parameters defined, that may need to be looked at.

Here is the documentation on valid parameters:

Here is testing tool where you can see how each parameter displays, you just paste in the base url to your playlist:

Some things you might try changing in the code to see if there is an effect:

1.  Change "theme color" instead of theme_color  (note the underscore)
2.  Change color="FF0000" instead of color=FF0000
3.  Change font_color="FF0000" to font_color=FF0000
4.  replace "&" with "&"

Try checking that, and if you still need help, let me know :slight_smile: Cheers, Dave
