Done! The soundcloud button is now in the post editor. Just to test it out, here is some Crystal Castles for your listening pleasure!

Ok, I have tested and verified that a different method of getting Vbulletin to allow embedding of Soundcloud works.

Upside: It will allow(require) the entire track url to be pasted in to the soundcloud tags. Since this is what most people try to do with the current tags it will probably be easier for most forum users.
It will mean that the exact track will play even if there is another track on Soundcloud with the same name.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This modification can be backwards compatible with the old version if you do the following;
1. Do not replace the old bbcode. Add this modification as new bbcode.
2. Remove the button image from the old code and assign it instead to the new code.
3. You must use new tags for the new code - I suggest "SCLOUD".

Code:
New Replacement Code;

<object height="81" width="100%">
<param name="movie" value="http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url={param}"></param>
<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param>
<param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param>
<embed allowscriptaccess="always" height="81" src="http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url={param}" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100%" wmode="transparent"></embed></object>


Options
Use {option}: No
Remove Tag If Empty: Yes
Disable BB Code Within This BB Code: Yes
Disable Smilies Within This BB Code: Yes
Disable Word Wrapping Within This BB Code: Yes
ie, changing the embed code for Soundcloud to the above will allow a full track URL to be pasted in to the soundcloud tags, something like;
[SCLOUD]http://soundcloud.com/bluffmunkey/shimmer-final[/SCL0UD]

Summary;
If you follow my instructions, the previous embedded soundcloud tracks will continue to work using the old code and the old code will work if anyone types the SOUNDCLOUD tags and puts a track name in the middle.
The new code will be used every time someone clicks the Soundcloud icon because the icon is linked to the new code.

Bump.
I mentioned on 5 March 2010 ( Do you remember the 90's? ) that I had edited my instructions for the potential new soundcloud embed code. My new instructions allow backwards compatability.

Hi All,

(Thanks for the code sample saxman !)

I have fixed the SoundCloud embedding feature so you should now embed using the full URL.

so this:

is created by using this bbcode:

[SOUNDCLOUD]https://soundcloud.com/dv247uk/komplete-9-ultimate-trailer[/SOUNDCLOUD]

Old SoundCloud embeds should be updated too (where the URLs still exist).

Hope that helps!
