Welcome to Gaia! ::

I want to put a playlist from 8tracks in the media section on my gaia profile. Is there a way I can do this?

It looks like it could be possible; they seem to have a Flash version of the player.
If you can link me to your playlist page, I'll try to get you the code you'll need for your profile.

Basically it looks like you need to do this:

1. Find a playlist. I chose at random:
http://8tracks.com/theriaultsam/study-session-at-a-coffee-shop-ver-3
2. Click the share button, the fourth in that vertical row of buttons starting with the heart
2a. Click the embed button that looks like <>
3. On the right column of options on the window that pops up, change it from HTML5 to Flash
(I don't believe size is significant)
4. Copy the embed, find the part in bold:
Quote:
&object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0" width="300" height="250"&<param name="movie" value="http://8tracks.com/mixes/1068606/player_v3"><param name="[removed]" value="always">&embed src="http://8tracks.com/mixes/1068606/player_v3" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="300" height="250" [removed]="always" &&/embed&&/object&<p class="_8t_embed_p" style="font-size: 11px; line-height: 12px;"><a href="http://8tracks.com/theriaultsam/study-session-at-a-coffee-shop-ver-3">Study Session at a Coffee Shop (ver. 3)</a> from <a href="http://8tracks.com/theriaultsam">TheriaultSam</a> on <a href="http://8tracks.com">8tracks Radio</a>.</p>

5. Put that in a media panel and re-size with CSS as needed

Try putting this in your media:

My profile is (very) temporarily a basic classic profile with that in the multimedia box; it seems to be working.

I think it actually didn't have the playerv3 part in it at all, it only showed up because i opened the link in a browser window and it changed it automatically.
