Please note, SoundCloud’s embed does not respect starting at a specific time. This is a limitation within SoundCloud’s own embed code.

4. Paste it into a Discussion, a comment or message box, and SoundCloud will auto embed.


SoundCloud also works with playlists, so you can embed things like the Serial Podcast. Once the current track finishes, it will go onto the next one. We hope you enjoy this new feature.Check out the rest of the Social Media sites you can embed seamlessly.
