Embedding Audio Players from Third Party Host
Hosting audio files on a third party host is a great way to increase social media presence, as well as a solution for hosting large audio files (over 20MB) that will not upload to your website. Embeding audio players used the same steps as embedding videos hosted on third party hosts like Youtube and Vimeo.
1) Go to the third party host where you have created an account and uploaded your audio files, such as SoundCloud. Select Share for the Audio file player you would like to embed. You can embed single and multi-track audio players.
2) Select the Embed option.
3) Select if you want the large version of the player or the small version. For this purpose, we are selecting the small.
4) You can either copy and paste the iframe code as it is in the code field, or select More options, for editing options of the audio player appearance, changing the color of the play button and enable automatic play. We strongly suggest DO NOT select the automatic play, especially if you are embedding more than one player on a page.
5) Copy the embed code in the Code and Preview field.
6) Login to your website and open the content to edit where you want to place the embed code. Add any text you want to use to introduce the audio player. Then Change the Text Format from Full HTML/Complete to Plain HTML
7) Find the text you used to introduce the audio, and paste the iframe code underneath it on its own line.
8) Change the Text format back to Full HTML/Complete and Save your changes. You should now see the embedded player in your content.
