Anyone else having issues with adding new embedded Grooveshark link? All of my old Grooveshark links work, but any new links I try to add look really weird.

    Oh hey! I hadn't noticed it... Shoot. Makes you go to another page to listen. :(
    It's actually affecting my old links too.
    I guess this has to be on their end... Ugh.

    Yes, and tried multiple fixes yesterday- nothing worked. I am taking all my links down for now. Grr. Seems like a change in grooveshark, not OP at all.

    DAMMIT! :)

    Well, my campaign is intrinsically linked to music, and I had put theme songs for nearly every PC, location and Major NPC. Now, it looks like the best I can do is go back and change them all into direct links to the Grooveshark song play page. Is there code one can add to the link to have it at least open in a new browser window?

    Here is a sample of my clunky fix: "Annie Mae's Cafe":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/sactown-blues/wikis/annie-maes-cafe

    Below is the Embed Text that is on Grooveshark's page for this song. It of course does not work in OP. I was wondering if there was a way to convert this code into code that _would_ be useful to us. When I look at it, my eyes glaze over. Maybe it will make sense to one of you, and you can figure out how to make it work.

    Looks like they are working now. On a side note...anyone know how to make the songs auto play and/or do a play list and not just one song?

    Not sure about the autoplay, but the playlist is easy. Just build yourself a playlist in Groove shark (create playlist > add the songs you want). Once you've got it the way you want it, go to the playlist (click on it in your list of playlists). Up in the right hand side should be several options (Play Playlist, Share, and the settings gear). Just click on share. You can use the copy button in the lower left corner of the dialogue box to copy the link, then just paste it into the code the same as you would the song URL.

    Seems that Grooveshark is not working for me once more. All I get is the gray box and the spinning shark fin. Sigh.

    ^ I second Tolsimir's query! I'd love to get excerpts of my music collection on the website for when I'm (or rather, my bard is) not there to whip out a guitar IRL. Has anyone found a grooveshark-like replacement? Or is the next-best thing merely to link to youtube versions of the songs?

    Many thanks!

    Grooveshark borke with the Reforge and hasn't worked since.

    I've done a workaround on my site using YouTube, and resizing it to meet the same sizes as my old Grooveshark links. You're welcome to steal that code. It's on my Session pages and Character sheets for Shadows.

    I shared it back a while after the Reforge in another conversation about Grooveshark, but here's the code as I use it now:

    I did something similar to Keryth with our character theme songs. It works very well, actually. In case anyone will find it helpful, here's what I put in our custom CSS:
    @/*Style Embed*/
    .oembed {height: 60px !important;overflow:hidden;padding:0 !important;margin:0 !important;}@

    Keryth's inline styling gives you more control, actually, since the way I have it set up, you'd have to custom style any videos you want to display full size. Since we don't need that, it's been more convenient for us to be able to just click the "media embed" button and paste in the youtube/soundcloud link to let OP generate the code.

    You can enclose code in @ signs here on the forums, but for on a wiki page, I think this would work better:

    @Code goes [email protected]

    I think that added style will make it wrap instead of spill off the side the page.
