Heya guys! mwhitco91 here. Y'know how Playlist.com one day decided to tell us "we're not going to let you share your playlists anymore just because we said so"? Well, I seem to have found a way around this!

While going through some websites that I made AGES ago, I came across one that had an embedded music player from Playlist.com! And, guess what? It still worked. So, I logged onto the website's editor and took the embed code from the music player. Turns out, it's one that's also compatible with this site! Woo-hoo! Yep, I guess they let the playlists that were already shared...continue to be shared. Works for me! I've got music on my profile now, thanks to them doing that! >=D

HOW TO SET UP YOUR PROFILE WITH MUSIC:

(Follow these instructions CAREFULLY. Failure to do so...well, honestly, it's not that big of a deal. You might have to re-do a couple of parts though! T-T)

This is a two-step guide. Both steps are pretty easy, really, as long as you follow instructions.

STEP 1:

1) Go to playlist.com and make a playlist. You can also select a playlist that's already made, either one will work. If you don't have an account there, you'll need one in order to make your own playlist.

2) Once you have a playlist made, click on the "My Playlists" tab at the top of Playlist.com's home page. You can also search for someone else's playlist, it doesn't matter.

3) Select the playlist that you'd like to embed on your profile. Just click on it. It should bring up the list of songs that're on that playlist.

4) Now, look up at your browser's address bar. There should be a 10- or 11-digit number somewhere up there. Copy that number and get out your calculator!
(NOTE: The playlist.com URL also should NOT begin with "www.playlist.com/user/". It SHOULD begin with "www.playlist.com/playlist/". If it ends in /user/, start again from step 3.)

5) Divide the number in your address bar by 256. Round the result to the nearest whole number. Put the result off to the side for now; you're going to need it later!

STEP 2:

You're now going to be working on the embed code to personalize your playlist! The embed code is within the spoiler below this paragraph. You should notice that the code has a bunch of "XXXXX"s on it. These are areas where you will be able to personalize your player. Below the spoiler, there will be further instruction.



REPLACING THE PURPLE AREAS (THERE ARE 4):
-Enter number that you ended up with back in step 1.


REPLACING THE RED AREAS (THERE ARE 2):
-Enter "white" to have a white music player.
-Enter "red" to have a red music player.
-Enter "blue" to have a blue music player.
-Enter "green" to have a green music player.
-Enter "black" to have a black music player.
(I don't know about any other colors, but feel free to try them out!)
(DO NOT ENTER QUOTATION MARKS)


REPLACING THE GREEN AREAS (THERE ARE 2):
-Enter "autostart" for the music player to start automatically when your profile is loaded.
-Enter "noautostart" for the music player to start manually by visitors to your profile.
(DO NOT ENTER QUOTATION MARKS)


REPLACING THE ORANGE AREAS (THERE ARE 2):
-Enter "shuffle" for the music player to play songs in a random order.
-Enter "noshuffle" for the music player to play songs in order.
(DO NOT ENTER QUOTATION MARKS)


FINISHING UP:

Now that you have your embed code ready to go, now it's time to put it on your profile! On Crunchyroll, go to settings > profile information > basic and paste the embed code that you have made into the provided "Embed Music" area!

Enjoy! ^o^

If it doesn't work for you, post here and I'll see if I can help you out. =D

To save some time and clutter, this is all you need to embed it:
The number is still the playlist number divided by 256.
As far as colors go, these are the ones listed on the site Black, Grey, Red, Green, Blue, Pink, and Purple.

Playlist.com has added a feature to use an Old Style embed code, but it does not work properly without modification, so I would just stick with this method.

If you are still having trouble, feel free to message me, as many of you already have, or you can install my extension which now converts the embed code for you.
