    You’re just linking to SoundCloud. You need to use the shortcode to embed it: http://en.support.wordpress.com/audio/soundcloud-audio-player/

    Are you referring to a different post?

    Your browser is turning the URL portion of the shortcode into a link when pasting. It happens, but it’s rare.

    In your editor, do you see how it’s underlined and blue?

    Highlight that, and click the button the look like a broken chain to the right of the link button.

    This will break the link, and the shortcode should work properly.

    I don’t think this issue has been resolved even for @tiranstyles. I see the same blank screen on her blog as what it shows on mine. However, the issue seems to be related to HTML5 at Soundcloud website itself. I see the same blank grey screen when I try to grab the WordPress shortcode from Soundcloud. It works if you grab the Flash code instead.
