    Quick PSA regarding the Soundcloud update, it seems a few folks have had some issues with embedding. The easy solution is to just manually insert your link:

    Code:
    [MEDIA=soundcloud]YourURLHere[/MEDIA]
    Should display like the following:

    as an aside, is it possible to make the soundcloud not default to full volume? It sucks listening to music people upload when they are just always too loud...

    Sadly, their oEmbed API doesn't allow defaulting the volume. There's really not a lot of control that they provide, honestly.

    Yep. The API is a total pain in the dick to deal with, and you can find it on the developer section of Soundcloud.

    It's just as frustrating as it looks.

    Would it be possible to enable embeds of audio files as an alternative?

    At this point in time, no. We don't have the drive space or setup to really support that. To be honest, the Soundcloud setup is already a colossal hack, and there's no telling how many more will be needed to make it to XF2 at this point.
