Is there a cable available to connect both? I found this:

Not sure you can change optical digital into analog 3,5mm use only a single cable, you will need a converter. But if your bluray player has a headphone output, it much easier if you use that.

Thanks,
Is it possible to use a splitter to connect two sound devices to the AUX of the Soundlink?

William.
To change between optical digital and the 3.5mm analog signals you would need a separate Digital to Analog Converter device between them to translate. You can find these from a 3rd party, though they can vary quite a bit in the quality of their conversion.
An audio splitter to the back of your speaker may or may not work correctly in this type of setup. Usually we would recommend using a simple source selector in between if you plan on connecting multiple sources to the AUX in on your SoundTouch. 
Hope this helps!
