Mixcloud helps connect radio content to listeners by joining the dots between radio shows, Podcasts and DJ mixes. They are called Cloudcasts – audio shows that are stored in the “cloud” and are available to be streamed on-demand for use on your blog or website.
Are you trying to use the the gigya shortcode Flash workaround on a WordPress.com blog and having trouble embedding it? Mixcloud has updated their widgets from Flash to HTML 5. All you need to do is go to a Cloudcast page, click on the ‘Share’ button and then you’ll get a pop-up box. In that pop-up just go to the WordPress button, click on it and copy the short code.
As I don’t have a space upgrade and do not use Mixcloud I’m not clear on whether the shortcode is for WordPress.ORG sites only or for both WordPress.COM blogs and WordPress.ORG installs.
Do you have audio on your WordPress.com blog?
What’s your response to autoplay music on blogs? Autoplay is a major irritant for some people (myself included). Many of us will click out never to return again if we experience another person’s musical taste and have not been given an option to listen or not. I never return to such blogs. But if the blogger allows me to activate the music myself I don’t have that response and some of the music I have heard on blogs has been relaxing. It set the mood for me to read blog posts slowly and comfortably.
