I'm not sure whether I'm doing this wrong or it's just not working for me.

We've been able to embed Soundcloud links for a while now - YouTube and SoundCloud embedding is now enabled even though there was a transition issue with https - https for SoundCloud

…but I inlined one this morning & it doesn't show to me, it's just a link, in https://music.stackexchange.com/a/109701/12556

Is this confirmable by others, or is it just me?
Bug, feature or human error?

Further tests - I checked the original notice from Jeff Attwood & the embedded link he uses as an example still shows to me.
My Soundcloud uploads are set to Public by default - I have to manually change if I want Private, so that's not it.

    I wondered if the problem arose from having a YouTube link preceding the SoundCloud link. Nope. Created a question on the main site with only a SoundCloud link and nothing else, and the embedding failed. – Aaron Jan 12 at 19:01
  • Checking a few posts, I also failed to see any embedded players on existing posts with Soundcloud URL. – Andrew T. Jan 16 at 13:27
  • FWIW, I also failed to find the relevant JS scripts to convert the links to embedded players. As for why this question still shows the embedded player, I believe because there's no revision since 2011 and the rendered HTML page was saved in the database. I just did a science (please reject them) and the same question failed to render the embedded player after I suggested an edit. – Andrew T. Jan 16 at 13:43
