My Cloud Player 9 for SoundCloud Brings Local Audio Playback and More!
We first talked about the alternative SoundCloud client My Cloud Player by XDA Senior Member dcucko back in October of last year. My Cloud Player was originally written to provide SoundCloud users with functionality that was unavailable in the official SoundCloud app. The aesthetically appealing player offered the ability to chart your most played songs, view your playback history, cache tracks for offline playing, Last.fm scrobbling, and more.
Between its original launch and now, My Cloud Player has evolved quite a bit, adding features such as Chromecast and XMBC support. But now, My Cloud Player has been updated to version 9, and with this update come many more goodies. Perhaps the most notable change is the ability to play local audio files, rather than just audio from SoundCloud. This local audio playback support has also been extended to the Chromecast, using the NanoHttpD library. In addition, playlist support has been improved, allowing users to save remote, local, cached, and downloaded tracks together—all in one playlist. Finally, the app has been optimized in terms of performance, memory usage, and bug fixes.
If you’re looking for a great (and free) media player that can handle your SoundCloud and local media content, head over to the application thread and give My Cloud Player a shot.
