Tip of the week: Make sure your SoundCloud tracks are ready for streaming!

At BandPage we do our best to pay attention to the needs of our users.  As we continue to evolve our products, we want to make sure that you understand how best to use them.  Recently we have received a lot of questions about the process for getting SoundCloud tracks ready for streaming to your BandPage Profile. Despite some recent changes that we have made, this process has stayed the same.  Here is a quick refresher on how to make sure your SoundCloud tracks are ready to stream and play through your BandPage Profile:

Step 1:  Make sure each track has the right settings in SoundCloud.
To check on this, log in to www.SoundCloud.com and click on the pencil icon above each track that you wish to have available for streaming on your BandPage.

This will bring you into the Settings Pane for your SoundCloud account.  You will want to make sure that you have all the following settings on tracks that you wish to stream to BandPage:

 

 

 

1.  Make sure that your SoundCloud track(s) are set to have Widgets Enabled.
This will allow your songs to stream on any Widgets that are connected to your SoundCloud Account (this includes BandPage Extensions too!).

2.  Make sure that your SoundCloud track(s) are set to have Apps Enabled.
This will allow your songs to stream on any Apps that are connected to your SoundCloud account (like your BandPage on Facebook!)

3.  Make sure that your SoundCloud track(s) are set as Public.
Private tracks can’t be streamed or seen by anyone but you, so you will need to make sure that any tracks you want to have on your BandPage are set as Public in SoundCloud

Step 2:  Make sure that your tracks have been successfully added to your BandPage Profile.

When you add music to your BandPage Profile from your SoundCloud account, make sure that all the desired tracks are available to select from the list.

If your tracks don’t appear, you may not have everything setup correctly.

Once the tracks are selected, click “Next” and you will be prompted to enter any additional track information like title, permissions, and album artwork.  Or you can choose to just upload the tracks and make changes later.  Once that is all done, save and you’re ready to rock!

The changes will appear instantly anywhere online that you use BandPage- whether it’s Facebook, your blog, or your Website!
