    Question Soundcloud RSS/audio file possible ?

    Hi guys,
    Is it possible to subscribe to a Soundcloud user, and import an RSS feed that contains the media files for that user?
    I do not see how to do this. Any help appreciated.
    Probably more a Soundcloud thing, than a BeyondPod thing, but thought i'd ask anyway.

    Many thanks,
    Darren.

    I don't know about SoundCloud specifically (I've never used it), but if you just need to supply a username and password to access an existing RSS feed, you can do that in the feed settings. You'll find Feed Authentication (Feed User Name / Feed Password) in the Advanced section of the feed settings.

    Does that do what you want?

    BeyondPod can't create an RSS feed; it just reads them.

    If there is a way to download the media files you want to listen to, you could put them in a folder and create a virtual feed for that folder, which would allow you to listen to them from BP.

    However, from what I can see, SoundCloud is a streaming-only service, so I'm afraid the answer looks like it's going to be that what you want to do isn't possible.

    It used to be possible to subscribe to SoundCloud feeds of user podcasts/audio in BeyondPod - try this:

    - In SoundCloud web site, revert back to the old version of SoundCloud by clicking on the [MORE] button on the top right and "Switch back to classic SoundCloud'

    - Then, in your Dashboard, click on the user/feed that you are following - on the right, there should be a RSS logo and you can copy and paste that into BeyondPod.

    This SoundCloud post shows where the RSS logo is in the Classic SoundCloud - I can't find the RSS logo anywhere in the new version of SoundCLoud though

    Thing is, I'm using the beta version of BeyondPod (with Feedly 'support') and it seems to mess up SoundCloud RSS subscriptions - it worked perfectly in the release version though. Anyone from BeyondPod confirm? (Here is a sample RSS/SoundCloud link for you: http://feeds.soundcloud.com/users/13...agazine/tracks)

    Thanks

    i think they want you to follow them in their mobile app.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...dcloud.android

    Also most of the non-music podcasts on there i recognise and have their own feeds/websites.

    SoundCloud Classic web site supports RSS feeds:

    I can't get them working properly in the beta of BeyondPod just yet...

    What's not working properly? The one you mentioned http://feeds.soundcloud.com/users/13...agazine/tracks seems OK.

    Nothing now! I think Feedly had a bit of a moment with SoundCloud feeds. It all works OK now! Thanks!

    FYI, I've had success converting Soundcloud to RSS with this:
    http://picklemonkey.net/cloudflipper-home/

    I checked Hide tracks which can’t be downloaded and Prefix Uploader name to each article’s title.
