When I upload a music file - mp3 - to sound cloud and then try to use it on my site website builder says 'sorry but we can't find this file'. What am doing wrong. I shared it on twitter. Does it take some time for it to complete some sort of vetting process for copyrights etc? Thanks.

I am trying to use it on home/index page for breezyremodel.com site.

My plan is to use it on auto play, and hide the player behind the green text box in the center of the page.

Thanks!

When I go to Soundcloud, there is a not on the page that says the file is private. Maybe that is causing the issue.

Hey Drew,
I finally got around to testing the 'private' status and decided to list this song as public and that fixed the problem. I was initially concerned about the 'player' showing but I simply moved in to the back of the order on the page, checked the auto play box and presto, now I have background music for my home page. I am so happy.

Thanks again for your input!
Dennis
