Thanks to a comment from CB in the last post and two more hours I finally succeed in implementing the Grooveshark widget on WordPress. I still don’t know how to get text next to it and it seems not very functional. After a song, it stops and if you’re double-clicking on the others songs nothing happens…It’s still better than nothing.

Hope you’ll enjoy the selection. For « You taught me how to speak in love » from Marlena Shaw, don’t be surprised by the album’s name. It’s the real one. In 1974, she was not yet famous, that’s why she called her album: « Who is this bitch, anyway? ».

If anyone is interested by the code, here’s mine:

gigya src= »http://listen.grooveshark.com/widget.swf » type= « application/x-shockwave-flash » width= « 250 » height= « 343 » flashvars= « cowbell.grooveshark.com&widgetID=XXX…0 » allowScriptAccess= « always » wmode= « window »

Just replace the line « cowbell.grooveshark.com&widgetID=XXX… » by the one corresponding to your GS widget. You’ll find it in the html code given in step 3 of your widget creation. Be sure to open the code and close it by putting [ and ]. I also had to insert manually all the « to make it work . If you have any questions or corrections to make, feel free to comment this post.

Ok, I’ve spent more than 2 hours on this Grooveshark Widget for WordPress. I made a playlist and search for the tracks and when I wanted to embed it at my blog, well it just goes wrong, I lost all my playlist! I tried again but it didn’t work. I don’t know what’s the problem.

During my researchs for a solution, I ended on the support page of WordPress.com. There is some advice for music integration on blogs. So I followed them and here comes the default player for mp3 on WordPress blogs. However you have to get an url which provide the player directly to an mp3. The big advantage with the Grooveshark Widget is that it’s streaming music on Grooveshark servers. I have to find a solution for futur sounds. Youtube is easy to integrate but what seduce me in this widget was the possibilty to display an entire playlist. I’m going to work on it. It would be great if I can find an easy solution. Indeed, I don’t want to set up an FTP account for my WordPress blog, It seems quite complicated and for the moment I’m going to stay with the easy solution of the dashboard. 🙂

Even if I lost a playlist, I have still been able to provide you this one – and only – track:
