Using Divi’s Audio Module with SoundCloud

by Web Design

If you are using the Divi Theme by Elegant Themes and trying to embed SoundCloud audio files you have probably run into some slight difficulties. The main issue being the SoundCloud URL to your audio isn’t compatible with the audio module, but don’t worry, I would like to show you a quick hack to get around these difficulties so you can use the Divi audio module on your website to post audio… like a BOSS! Let’s do this.

The Preparation

So the first thing you’re going to want to do is to grab any SoundCloud URL to a Podcast or Song, I will be using https://soundcloud.com/hope-church-winter-garden because they are one of our clients who we help to update content on their website.

Also, you will need your main SoundCloud profile URL in this case: https://soundcloud.com/hope-church-winter-garden

The Problem

Our main problem is that the Divi audio module is wanting to work by using a mp3 file, therefore, our song URL simply will not work because it is linking to just a page, not an actual mp3 file.

The Solution

First, we must find that pesky direct mp3 link from SoundCloud. We do this by visiting http://getrssfeed.com enter your SoundCloud profile URL (not the song or podcast URL) and click on get RSS feed.

Once you click on that you should see the RSS feed data, next use your internet browser’s search to quickly scan for your mp3 file. (On Chrome, you do this by hitting command F)

Once you have found the URL to the mp3 file all you need to do is paste it the Divi audio module and BOOM you now have SoundCloud audio playing through the Divi audio module!

In Closing

    Hey Jeremiah,

    I’ve followed the steps above and after inputing my soundcloud profile URL, I can see my profile appear with an RSS button.

    When I click the button, I’m shown the xml page displaying the RSS feed data (or at least what looks like it is), however nowhere on this short page is anything mentioning an MP3 file.

    Am I missing something obvious?

    Cheers, Joel

      can you send a link and I can take a look. 1 thing maybe… you said you put in your soundcloud profile URL, you should be putting in the direct URL for the Soundcloud song, itself, read over the instructions once more to get more clarity on that. 😀

    I came across your website and the solution was really easy to do. I appreciate a good explanation 🙂

    Hi, I wanted to check if this method still works. I tried it on a new site and it didn’t integrate. I also asked divi support and they said that something has changed at soundclouds end. Any thoughts!!
