Now Live: Embedding Rdio

As if using Rdio on the web, your desktop or mobile phone wasn’t liberating enough, Rdio now provides customizable embedded music players. Show off your favorite playlists, songs or albums elsewhere on the web – like your blog or website.

How to embed

To embed stuff, just hover over or click on the plus-button next to all songs, albums and playlists and select ‘Share’. Copy and paste the code where you want to embedded player to show up – or, if you want to get fancy, click Customize and select from several sizes of embedded players.

We hope you’ll love the things you can do from the players—subscribe to playlists, add or remove songs and albums in your collection or grab a quick link to the music on Rdio.

Who can listen to music on embedded Rdio?

First off, anyone with an account on Rdio can embed music wherever they want. And anywhere on the web an Rdio subscriber sees an embedded player, they can play everything - it’s included in their subscription. What if your readers aren’t on Rdio? Or their trial expired? No worries, they can still listen to 30-second clips of available music or create their own accounts and experience Rdio’s free trial.

Technically Speaking

If you’re looking to easily support Rdio embeds on your site, we support oEmbed. Our endpoint is http://www.rdio.com/api/oembed/, so if for instance you need the embed code for the new Chiddy Bang album, http://www.rdio.com/api/oembed/?url=http://www.rdio.com/artist/Chiddy_Bang/album/The_Preview/ will give you what you need.
