Find SoundCloud Stream In Firefox, Google Chrome And Opera All Versions
Browse to any SoundCloud track page.
Right-click the page on an empty spot and select "View Page Source" or simply "Source" in Opera.
Now press "control" and the key "f". This will allow you to search the page source code for any term you like.
In the tab that opens search for "stream". The results will be highlighted immediately.
Right after the first result you can see a link starting with "http://media.soundcloud.com/stream/.." followed by a bunch of numbers and letters.
Highlight this link right up to just before the question mark. Done. This is the link you want.
Let's go to the SoundCloud track page of Speedy J and Gary Beck's - Vaag (A great deep and driving Techno track). When you view the source code of that page you will find that the stream URL is the following:
Of course you can share this link with friends, email it or post it in forums. Everyone will be able to hear your music across all iPlatforms. For example if you surf this blog with your iDevice simply click the above link and see what happens for yourself.
The Bay Area Native has informed me that they have used this method to provide SoundCloud tracks to all their mobile visitors. Check out their MP3 section to see an example of this method on a professional music site. http://bayareanative.com/category/mp3/. The links are marked "iOS/Android: Mobile Stream" and you can find them directly under the posts.
Download SoundCloud Tracks
You can download the track directly from such an URL. Simply let the track load completely and download it with the FlashGot add-on for Firefox or the DownThemAll! add-on for Firefox for example. Of course there is the Soundcloud Super +2: Downloader + Recommender for downloading tracks from SoundCloud as well.
If the user has disabled the download permission for that track or the monthly download limit is reached with such a link the track can still be downloaded. So this method also removes the download permission as well as privacy for tracks. Use it sensibly and if you like a track go buy it and support the artists.
This is an updated version of an earlier post of mine. If you have any questions or problems feel free to get in touch. I have tested this on older (e.g. FF 3.5) as well as the latest versions of the above listed browsers. It should not matter if you are on Linux, Mac or Windows, this should work across all systems. Since I don't use Safari I could not test this but I am sure Safari has a similar if not the same possibility of looking at a site's source code and searching for a specific term in it.
