Custom BB codes need to be created. This one's for Soundcloud. Apparently the Bandcamp one is a little trickier, but I'll see if I can find one.

Soundcloud:

BBCODE USAGE:
Code:
[soundcloud]{URL}[/soundcloud]

BBCODE EXAMPLE:
Code:
[soundcloud]http://soundcloud.com/user-name/song-title[/soundcloud]

HTML REPLACEMENT:
Code:
<object height="81" width="100%"><param name="movie" value="http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url={URL}&amp;g=bb"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed allowscriptaccess="always" height="81" src="http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url={URL}&amp;g=bb" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100%"></embed></object>

The custom BB code for Bandcamp is certainly a little trickier.

Bandcamp:

BBCODE USAGE:
Code:
[bandcamp album={NUMBER} bgcol={SIMPLETEXT1} linkcol={SIMPLETEXT2} size={SIMPLETEXT3}][/bandcamp]

BBCODE EXAMPLE:
Code:
[bandcamp album=1848888471  bgcol=FFFFFF linkcol=4285BB size=venti][/bandcamp]

HTML REPLACEMENT:
Code:
<iframe width="400" height="100" style="position: relative; display: block; width: 400px; height: 100px;" src="http://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/v=2/album={NUMBER}/size=venti/bgcol=FFFFFF/linkcol=4285BB/" allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0"></iframe>


I'm not 100% sure if this one will work correctly, but it's worth a try.

the official answer is (essentially) a software product company providing business intelligence via web based subscription services
the actual answer is they don't have a fucking clue these days, but they want to hire you anyway in case they figure it out.

As enticing as it sounds, I think the 14,170 KM commute is going to kill me after a while.

It's a shame we couldn't have had our 9 coffee breaks a day together though, Mary. They would've been great.

The bandcamp one doesn't even have to be that complicated/customized. Let's say we opt for an unique size for the player on the board (the 400x120 one for instance), people would just have get the album ID within the BC embed code:
Code:
<iframe style="border: 0; width: 100%; height: 120px;" src="http://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/album=*****JUST THIS NUMBER RIGHT HERE*****/size=medium/bgcol=ffffff/linkcol=0687f5/transparent=true/" seamless><a href="http://ihadanaccident.bandcamp.com/album/boogie-boy-metal-mouth">Boogie Boy Metal Mouth by Boogie Boy Metal Mouth</a></iframe>


and use it like this:
Code:
[bandcamp]2421209730[/bandcamp]


That would look like this:
Code:
[bandcamp]{NUMBER}[/bandcamp]

Code:
<iframe style="border: 0; width: 100%; height: 120px;" src="http://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/album={NUMBER}/size=medium/bgcol=ffffff/linkcol=0687f5/transparent=true/" seamless></iframe>



But the easiest way for the user would of course be to let them grab the full embed code without worrying about which part is important. Maybe the wordpress embed code, as it's shorter and simpler.

Code:
[bandcamp][bandcamp width={SIMPLETEXT1} height={SIMPLETEXT2} album={NUMBER} size={SIMPLETEXT3} bgcol={SIMPLETEXT4} linkcol={SIMPLETEXT5}][/bandcamp]

Code:
<iframe style="border: 0; width: 100%; height: 120px;" src="http://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/album={NUMBER}/size=medium/bgcol=ffffff/linkcol=0687f5/transparent=true/" seamless></iframe>


The only problem with that is that if you select the large player on bandcamp, you get a slightly different embed code with an additional parameter, which is going to fuck things up.


So maybe the first option of just getting the album ID from either embed code and having a fixed size/display might be easier to implement. I reckon the people who are going to embed bandcamp streams are internet-savvy enough to know how to get the album ID within the full embed code.


(note: I can't test any of that right now, so there could be mistakes)

That's probably a better way, nice work heathen. :thumbsup:

Just the id code would be best.

Yeah, but there's something I hadn't thought about. This was for embedding albums, embedding single tracks is yet another code :?

Code:
[bandcamp width=100% height=120 album=1725912726 size=medium bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5]
vs.
Code:
[bandcamp width=100% height=120 album=1725912726 size=medium bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 t=6]


It's been a while since I've used BBcodes and I'm not sure if the syntax allows for more complicated patterns (where part of the text would be optional to account for the presence or absence of the track parameter). If not that means using two different bbcodes, which is kinda shitty.

What if it was set up similar to the URL code so it's something like [bandcamp=ALBUMID]track number[\bandcamp]?

It would at least be a syntax that's somewhat familiar to codes we already use.

I don't know how that would work when you're embedding the full set (meaning there's no track number). We'd have to be able to write a code that does "if there's a track number use the code for the track player otherwise use the code for the album player", and while this is easily doable in general I'm not certain the custom BBcode feature of the board allows it.

Or did you mean having this code as a separate BBcode for embedding tracks?

The if/then statement regarding the track is ideal, but is it the end of the world having 2 codes?

[BCalbum]ID[/BCalbum]
[BCtrack=track#]albumid[/BCtrack]

Why not? They've added twitter and vine embed codes recently. Having the soundcloud one would have been very useful in the last pearl jam tourament and would be huge in any thread McParadigm makes in Release.
