    Hi Shauna,

    Thanks for the reply.  I've got both the players working using the widget now.  It's a shame that the Wix widget doesn't let you customise the colour.  I am not entirely sure that this is a premium feature of Soundcloud as the option is available as part of the 'advanced settings' when generating the HTML to embed the player in to a site (that's how I managed to do it).

    Incidentally; the HTML embed code that is generated by Soundcloud (which includies the custom colour) is what Wix asks you to paste into the widget, so I'm unclear as to which code you refer to that is untested within Wix?

    Anyhow; I've submitted it to the wishlist.

    Thanks again for your reply,

    @66354, each of your players on both sites you sent us above are working. You simply need to check the Autoplay box in your site 'armshousegroup.co.uk' to make it auto-play.  


    *Also, you cannot change the color to the SoundCloud player. Changing this color is a premium service of SoundCloud. You can contact them to discuss the colors of your player. I know you did this through our HTML Add-On, however we do not provide support for this as you are using code not tested within Wix.

    Hi Elia,

    The one which looks correct and was added using the HTML addon is:



    And the one which was added with the Soundcloud widget, but doesn't carry the colour info is on another site:

    http://www.armshousegroup.co.uk/#!DOCTOR GRADUS|c1dgk


    I've just tried using Safari browser too and it keeps playing there also.  So far only Firefox is OK?

    Many thanks,

    @ctargett - BO

    Where exactly in your site have you placed the Sound Cloud Player? 

    Please note that using the HTML Add on, will miss specific Wix functions such as 'stop as the page changes'.


    In terms of customizing your Sound Cloud Widget color, unfortunately this isn't possible at the moment.

    We document and learn from every feature request and bug brought to our attention. These objectives are immediately high priority milestones in Wix's product road map.

    Feel free to add your feature request to our Wish List by posting here.

    I have noticed the same thing as ctargett in relation to both the player colour and 'keeps playing'.

    If I use the HTML addon to embed the code - I get the colour I want.

    As far as I can tell, the keeps playing when navigating to another page only happens in Google Chrome, Firefox is OK (OSX 10.6.8)  Are you using Chrome too ctargett?

    Many thanks,

    Hello, I am using a custom colour with my sound cloud player, however when I add the code to the wix sound cloud it uses a default colour of orange. If I embed into html I get the colour I want but then I have the trouble of the player won't stop playing when I leave the page. However the player does stop when using the wix souncloud player but default orange is not he colour I want.

    The Wix player isn't available on HTML5 sites.

    If you don't want to use SoundCloud, there are many alternatives (search for soundcloud alternative in Google)
