How do I get SoundCloud embeds to auto-play?

Embeds allow you to add content from SoundCloud to your prototypes. 

To get the embed to play automatically when the screen loads, you can add an auto-play parameter into the embed code. 

For example, this is the regular embed code for a SoundCloud file:

<iframe width="100%" height="450" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/playlists/302562083&amp;auto_play=true&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_reposts=false&amp;visual=true"></iframe>

 To get this to play, you can edit the auto-play attribute to 'true'

So the final embed should look like: 

<iframe width="100%" height="450" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/playlists/302562083&amp;auto_play=true&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_reposts=false&amp;visual=true"></iframe>

 

 Auto-play will only work when viewing on desktop, this is disabled on mobile devices.
