Playlists on Mixcloud is a list with "shows". "Shows" is your mix in the Mixcloud universe. This might be confusing as some would refer to their music mix as a playlist.
1. How to upload your mix on mixcloud.com
Go to https://mixcloud.com and create a free profile. A free profile will allow you to upload 10 public music mix. On the left menu you will see "MY SHOWS" and "PLAYLISTS". To upload your first mix click: "MY SHOWS"
When you click "MY SHOWS" you will likely see a message saying "you currently have no public shows". Click the button: "upload now".
You can now choose to upload "SHOWS" or "TRACKS". "Shows" are your mix or recordings while "Tracks" are individual music files that you created on your own. To upload your music mix click: "upload" under "SHOWS".
Find your mix from your local device, add a title, genre/tags and description and change image if needed. Once done, click: "Publish" in the top right corner.
2. How to create playlists with music mix´s on mixcloud.com
To add a music mix to a playlist you need to click (1) "my shows", (2) the "music icon" and (3) "new playlist". (if you already have a playlist created, you can select that on the list).
When you click "PLAYLISTS" you will see your created playlists and each thumbnail will show number of "SHOWS" in each playlist.
If you click one of the playlists a new page will open with a list of your "SHOWS" within that playlist. Below you can see 2 shows within the playlist called "short mix for cycling". If you want to edit anything within your playlist then click "edit".
After clicking "edit" you will see the option to delete.
3. How to connect a music mix from mixcloud.com in the session designer
When you have created your workout profile and click "SAVE" in the session designer, you will see the option to connect Mixcloud on the left side. Click "add playlist".
You cannot import the playlist like it is possible with Spotify, Dropbox/Mp3 and Swedebeat. If you want to work with your music mix when creating your workout, you need to upload your mix as an Mp3 file using the dropbox integration.
The current Mixcloud integration is about making the music available for other users, so they can enjoy your work.
If you have not yet connected your Mixcloud account, a message will ask you to do so
When you have connected your Mixcloud account, all of your playlists containing mix´s will appear on the right column. If you click one of your playlists, your "shows" will appear. The image below will show 2 mix available in the playlist "short mix for cycling".
Select the mix you want to add to your workout and it will show in the save window. When you save your workout, the link to this playlist will be saved with it.
The music from Mixcloud will not start with the workout. The user need to follow the link to the mix and then start it manually with the workout.
4. How to use the link from Mixcloud connected to a workout.
If a workout has a mixcloud mix attached, it will show on the music icon in the top left corner of the workout profile. Please note that Intelligent Cycling will NOT start the music with the workout. This has to be done manually from the user following the link on the icon. Mixcloud does not allow for auto-start of the music in their current API.
