Having trouble embedding soundcloud player on Faceboook? (here's a work-around)

Recently Soundcloud turned off the automatic player embed you see when you share a soundcloud link on Facebook. I've setup a way around this for my own needs. Feel free to try it out for yourself.

Try this to get around the issue:
  1. Go to any track on soundcloud
  2. Change the url to soundcloudX.com (add an "x")
  3. Load the url in your browser, then copy/paste new url to facebook.

See it in action:

Just remove the 'S' from https. Works every time.

not anymore.. Soundcloud has made a change. The player no longer appears in Facebook when you share a soundcloud link. Thats why I created this work-around,
