In July, I showed how you can get the URL scheme for a SoundCloud user or track from an embed code so that you can open right into that track or user in the SoundCloud iOS app from a launcher like Launch Center Pro. Today I decided to automate the process for a track URL.

You can use the script here.

To get the embed code, go to a track on the desktop site (make sure it's not a playlist); click on the Share button; click on the Embed tab; and copy the code within the Code & Preview box and copy it to your clipboard. Paste it into the text area in my script, click the button, and get the URL scheme.

I have not done many test cases; I am assuming all track IDs are the same length. If this script doesn't work for you, please report in the comments section.
