Replacing Soundcloud

Wednesday, May 16th, 2018

Decided to finally get into the muck of using RSS to follow people on RSS-unfriendly site Soundcloud, so I can delete the account I abandoned there. Technically SC accounts have RSS feeds, but they’re hidden a bit.

I made a passing reference to taking my music of Soundcloud back when I did it, but here’re some tips for people who want to either host their own music and/or keep track of things without having an account.

If you have a website, having little audio (and video) players is very easy in plain HTML now. Here’s an example using an OGG file, but you can use MP3 or whatever, even multiple types at once.

<audio src="audio/audiofile.ogg" type="audio/ogg" controls></audio>

There’s more detail on Mozilla’s website (and other places) if you want to play with other features.

If you want to get RSS feeds of SC users I’m finding getrssfeed.com useful, You just put in the URL of the page and it gives you the feed.

If you’re in the mood for RSSing stuff RSS-Bridge is really handy for getting feeds from places that don’t support them (Facebook, Twitter, etc.). I’ve been using it at bridge.suumitsu.eu.
