1 Features

  • Soundcloud audios can be created as a file in the TYPO3 file list
  • Soundcloud audios can be used and output with the text with media element
  • Update metadata via filelist action or command

2 Usage

2.1 Installation

Installation using Composer

The recommended way to install the extension is using Composer.

Run the following command within your Composer based TYPO3 project:

composer require ayacoo/ayacoo-soundcloud

And as database fields are added, the DB Analyzer must also be run once.

2.2 TypoScript settings


With plugin.tx_ayacoosoundcloud.settings.privacy = 1 you can ensure that the IFrame is built with data-src instead of src. If you need more options to influence the HTML, you can use a PSR-14 event.

2.3 Hints


For the output, the HTML is used directly from Soundcloud.

SQL changes

In order not to have to access the oEmbed interface permanently, four fields are added to the sys_file_metadata table

3 Developer Corner

3.1 ModifySoundcloudOutputEvent

If you want to modify the output of the Soundcloud HTML, you can use the ModifySoundcloudOutputEvent.

EventListener registration

In your extension, extend Configuration/Services.yaml once:

    - name: event.listener
      identifier: 'soundcloud/output'
      event: Ayacoo\AyacooSoundcloud\Event\ModifySoundcloudOutputEvent

namespace Vendor\ExtName\EventListener;

use Ayacoo\AyacooSoundcloud\Event\ModifySoundcloudOutputEvent;

class SoundcloudOutputEventListener
    public function __invoke(ModifySoundcloudOutputEvent $event): void
        $output = $event->getOutput();
        $output = str_replace('src', 'data-src', $output);

3.2 Backend Preview

In the backend, the preview is used by TextMediaRenderer. For online media, this only displays the provider's icon, in this case soundcloud. If you want to display the thumbnail, for example, you need your own renderer that overwrites Textmedia. An example renderer is available in the project. Caution: This overwrites all text media elements, so only use this renderer as a basis.

You register a renderer in the TCA Configuration/TCA/Overrides/tt_content.php with $GLOBALS['TCA']['tt_content']['types']['textmedia']['previewRenderer'] = \Ayacoo\AyacooSoundcloud\Rendering\SoundcloudPreviewRenderer::class;
