SoundCloud Desktop Sharing Kit for Microsoft Windows


The Desktop Sharing Kit is a simple way to add Sharing to SoundCloud to your desktop application. It comes as a seperate executable for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS that you can include in your application and invoke it from there to let the user share a sound to SoundCloud.


This README describes the Microsoft Windows version. Head over here to the Mac OS X version.


You can either download the latest build from GitHub or compile it from source yourself. To clone the repository:

$ git clone git://


Head over to SoundCloud to register an application. If you plan to use the Windows version the redirect URI has to be set to "", so best use this one in general.

You'll have to pass the client_id, client_secret and redirect_uri later when invoking the executable.


Once you've added executable to your application you can call it using it's command line interface:

C:\>"Share on SoundCloud.exe" /client_id:YOUR_CLIENT_ID /track[asset_data]:audio.mp3 /track[title]:"Test Sound"

The arguments you can pass into the app are:

  • client_id: Manually pass in a client ID if you don't want to store it inside the application
  • track[asset_data]: The path to the sound
  • track[title]: The title
  • track[license]: The license
  • track[tag_list]: A space seperated list of tags
  • track[artwork_data]: The path to an artwork file

There are more options you can pass in using the track[...] arguments. See the complete list in the SoundCloud developer documentation.
