#SoundCloud Custom Player as a Prototype.js extension
This extension allows you to create easily customizable, HTML/CSS/JS based audio players. It uses the official SoundCloud Flash widget for the audio streaming and widget API for its control or native HTML5 streaming. Supports iPad, iPhone OS4, Palm Pre etc.
##Getting started The player setup is relatively easy:
Download the CSS and JS files for the sc-player here: http://github.com/walterdavis/soundcloud-custom-player/archives/master
First, add the player css files in the 'head' tag of your page source:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="../css/sc-player-standard.css" type="text/css"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="../css/sc-player.css" type="text/css">
Then add the script tags at the end of your 'body' tag (in case you're already using Prototype on your site, skip the first script tag):
And now let's create a player! Put this into your HTML code:
<a href="http://soundcloud.com/matas/hobnotropic" class="sc-player">My new dub track</a>
Now reload your page, and instead of the link you should see a cool new widget.
Note: when you're doing the test, please make sure you're running it on the local or remote web-server (http://localhost, 127.0.0.1/testpage, yoursite.com, etc.) Only so you can be sure that the Flash component will be initialized correctly and the track will actually play. If you're still experiencing problems, verify that the links to JS files are correct. Also make sure you're using an url of an existing track :)
The Wiki still has the jQuery-specific instructions, need to re-write.
