Just cant get audio embed to work, have checked the forum and web


first up here is my share link,

i'm trying to embed an audio file in the "generative research section" on the referendum awareness campaign page and I have been to w3school to find the html tag along with scouring the forum for help but I just can't seem to get this to work. I could always use the embed widget from sound cloud or clyph but they do not suit my design plans. I have tried a few variations sbut im unable to isolate the breakdown

thanks in advance webflowers


This is the link to a web page containing an audio player, not a link to a sound file.

In order for your <audio>embed to work, it's mandatory that the SRC attribute gets a link to a proper sound file (finishing by .wav or .mp3).


Vincent you are the superman of the webflow forum and i appreciate you taking the time to respond.
Your post makes alot of sense but if soundCloud and Clyp both do not give the required link info where could I possibly host the audio file that will give it to me?


Hey @Bryce_Fox

If you have your own FTP, you can host it on it.

I don't have an FTP so what I use atm is a free mp3 hosting site called but maybe there is a better alternative.



That's understandable that those services don't want to link to the final audio file... they sell a service, they don't want to be just a free CDN.

I you don't have a CDN or HTTP server with an FTP access, you can start by using Dropbox. Place your audio file in a folder on Dropbox then right click on the file and select Copy Dropbox link.... You'll get a link that ends by dl=0. Change the 0 to a 1 and you'll have a functional direct link.


Vincent, Your reference to Dropbox capture my attention. Do you have any experience using Google Drive to host an Jquery audio player and MP3 files? I am trying to do that using the Amazing Audio Player and cannot yet get my Webflow page to connect to the Google Drive links? Thanks.
