    Soundcloud is giving the biggest headache at the moment. Aside from site issues, I've put up one of those secret links to my track up in the production forum and the track shows up but appears as unavailable to listen to. The track is currently listed as private but I've already heard a few other tracks up on here that have been listed as private too and they work fine. Anyone have any ideas as to what is wrong? This is regarding the embedded player on the forum for my track.

    I use dubstepforum and the embedded players don't work there either, since like a month or two ago, it worked fine before then.
    It seems to happen with private tracks more often, but i have no idea why.
    You can always click the link below the player to listen on SC, not ideal, i know, but idk of anything else

    Soundcloud tracks haven't been working on Firefox. Optical just uploaded a bunch of old tunes that I really wanted to listen to so I logged on to Soundcloud using Shiternet Explorer and it worked. It worked on Firefox yesterday.

    I don't think private tracks can be played if they are embedded, people need to click the actual link that takes them to SoundCloud (I think)

    Yeah I've noticed that Firefox was having some major issues yesterday and couldn't work out if it was something to do with my own computer or not. Also I'm guessing that it's right about private links being unable to be embedded but wasn't too sure, however the actual links work fine. It's not often I'd need to share a private track anyway.

    @ Papa Jaro, yeah the main reason it's private right now is because it's a track for the BSE & Noisia Remix comp, so for now I'm only really sharing it here and not publically. People also do it when posting WIP samples but that's something I don't really do myself.

    Cheers for the replies anyway

    As far as I understood it Soundcloud can only really regulate privacy on their own website (because you have to choose which of their users you share it with) so to put it on another website you have to make it public surely? When I've linked to private tracks on here they've vanished in a puff of smoke although if you wait a bit and repost it that seems to be work (haven't done that in ages though).

    Just out of interest who are you sharing it with when you chose to post it on here (seeing as it's private)?

    I've kept it private to prevent it from appearing officially on the main page and show up properly on Soundcloud. It's just on here for the people who find the thread. If you are talking about the main browser url being blocked then that won't work at all but the "secret link" from the share drop down menu can be sent to anyone and will open up that page. I hadn't realised that there were issues with the embedded player not working though.
