Soundcloud is one of the largest online communities to discover new music and talents. Soundcloud enables it’s users to upload, promote, and share audio, as well as a DSP enabling listeners to stream audio.
Soundcloud has an embed feature on it’s player mostly used by bloggers to insert into their website. Let’s say for instance , a blogger wants to write about Eugy Official’s new song titled ‘Plenty Pepper‘ as done in this post , he or she inserted the embed code for the song at the tail end of the article so the reader can listen to the song whiles reading or after reading. This reduces music piracy to some extent, in the sense that it gives the blogger or the writer a better option to get access to the song rather than illegally downloading and re-uploading it to his or her website. Some musicians disable this feature on some of their releases for reasons unknown to us but there other ways to create embed codes for instances like this.
