Little Fluffy Clouds

I got an email yesterday from a reader who told me that one of the My Music Monday posts where I embed a player, as opposed to using a YouTube video was not working.

Sure enough, I went to the post and the message said 'file missing'.   Hmmmm.

So I went to Opendrive (I won't give them the dignity of linking to them) and sure enough, every file I have ever uploaded and linked my blog to has disappeared.

This kind of happened before, when they changed the linking codes, but at least the files remained. Not so much this time.

I am not even bothering to contact them to see what the deal is or if the issue can be fixed.  I am done with them.

Now, Sean R, a few months back said that Soundcloud would be a better player, or at least sound better. Right now that is the front runner, but does anyone use or recommend any other player that can be embedded into a blog?

Yes, I know Wordpress has some, but they are for WP, which I do not use, so while I appreciate the potential thought, that is a non-starter.

Oh yeah - and it has to be a free service.  I mean, you know I'm not paying for anything.

So once I select and sign-up, I'll eventually rebuild those posts.  It'll be a pain, but it's not like there are tons.

Onward and upward.

Glad I could be of assistance!

No suggestions I am afraid, I am a Wordpress user, but you have prompted me to explore. I have never added music to my blog other than via Youtube. I'll try it.
