We’ve just launched a bunch of beautiful new players for you, your fans and the press to embed across the web. They’re simple, customizable, free, and completely focused on your music.
First up is a large player, shown here without a tracklist:
with a tracklist:
and in a minimal, cover-art-only version:
The large player also gives you the option of integrating your merch right into it, like this (try clicking the vinyl images):
We also have a lighter weight medium player:
and an ultra-compact small player:
To create one of the new players, click the Share/Embed control located just beneath your cover art, then click “embed this album”:
You can then customize your player, adjusting its size, color, whether it includes the tracklist and images of your merchandise, and so on:
We’re also pleased to report that our new players now appear right inside of Twitter whenever you or your fans tweet out an album or track link, like this:
A few things you may be wondering:
Where do I paste the embed code?
Paste the code into the HTML of your website or blog post, and voila, you’ll have a player.
Do these work in WordPress?
Yes. If you’re using WordPress.com, be sure to choose “wordpress.com” from the radio selection just below the embed code. That will give you a special WordPress shortcode that you can paste right it into your post or page.
How about Tumblr?
On any track or album page, click the Share/Embed button and then click the Tumblr button (next to Tweet). That will automatically embed the horizontal player, and it’ll look great in your blog and on Tumblr’s dashboard. It’s possible to embed the standard or small layout player instead, but it will not appear inline in Tumblr’s dashboard view, so we don’t recommend it. If you wish to defy our counsel, you’ll need to go to https://www.tumblr.com/settings and temporarily switch your “Edit posts using” setting from “rich text editor” to “plain text/HTML” (Tumblr’s default rich text editor strips some of the attributes from the <iframe> tag, which causes the player to clip). Then click the Share/Embed link back on Bandcamp, choose “Embed this album,” and pick the standard or small player.
Can I use the new players inside of Facebook?
Facebook requires Flash for their widgets, so these (which are HTML5) won’t work there. However, you can still put a Bandcamp player into Facebook simply by pasting an album or track URL into your status. That will drop in our Flash-based player, which, while not the same design as these, will still work just fine.
As always, thank you for using Bandcamp!
