    I may have missed the important info, but this won't work without the Soundcloud repository plugin also being installed.

    Thank you Toy for your work. I don't understand how I use the filter. What should I do with the permalink?

    Have installed both this and the repository. Repository is working fine but I would prefer my students to just paste in the URL.

    However, the filter doesn't seem to work. I seem to remember you used to have to put [soundcloud] around the URL.

    Can you just confirm that you simply just paste in the URL to a text box? Have tried Section Info, Label and a Forum but no joy.

    Used this URL:

    Please help!

    What should I change to do with this permalink to my best essay writer profile? It redirects me to the main page once I put [soundcloud] at the URL and then it changes into the main page. How is that possible? Thanks.

    I haven't kept up code on this, but permalinks need to be public for filter to work.

    Hello! I'm trying to install this plugin to Moodle 3.3, but I keep getting this error message:

    Install plugin from ZIP file
    Validating filter_soundcloud ... Error
    [Error] Extracted file not found [{"file":"soundcloud\/php-soundcloud\/"}]
    Installation aborted due to validation failure

    What should I do to install it? Thank you so much for your help!

    Hi Krista,

    I haven't updated since Moodle v2.6 and there have been changes to how filters work since then. Have you tried the multi embed filter?
