Eric Motion! Video support now on SoundCloud

We’ve just added basic video support for SoundCloud. It’s quite simple: You can enter a link to a video in the edit screen for a track. You can of course enter any link, but if the link is either a link to Vimeo, Google Video, Youtube, or Viddler, we will display a button that will open a nice inline video player so that people can watch the video directly in the track page.

It’s really slick, especially if you upload HD video to Vimeo and buy yourself a Vimeo Plus account. Check out a video for one of my tracks, City Ports, for example.

With that, the SoundCloud teams wishes you all a nice weekend!

Eric A little something from our gig at SIME07

I’ve been falling asleep in random places today after a pretty hectic week in Stockholm at the SIME Conference, where we–a bunch of techno boys, video renegades and bad-behaved web geeks–managed to pull off something pretty interesting. We produced a kick-ass song, music video (Hi-res version) and ringtone on stage, all in 48 hours. There were around 1000 attendees at the conference, and quite a few of them shot pictures of the performance, and I’ve been granted permission to show some of the best ones on this blog. So, here we go!
