A must have for any Community Builder driven site (the Jomsocial version is also available)!
The installation is easy and I even translated it to Hebrew (RTL, utf-8) without problems.
The "Accordion" style of the player helps my users to manage their files easily.
The Support I got from the developer was immediate and he help me solve a problem caused by a DIFFERENT extension...
A 5 stars and worth every penny.
I then went to the software site's support page and browsed through the forum for this software. It was mentioned to read the installation instructions, but none were included, and another user pointed out this fact. Yet the author still did not post a link to the instructions, nor did he post them on the forum, or a link to them. It was mentioned to set the root permissions of the site to 777 until the first song was uploaded. Doing this caused my site to crash. Was able to restore the No luck. I also tried responding to the email address that came back to me from my contact form reply that I had sent to my address when I submitted my issue. This email came back unaccepted.
So its either wait it out for an answer to the issue or my request for a refund. Thus the reason I scored low for this software, as installation and instructions fail it.
Hello, I feel sorry for your disappointment, but what you say is not exact, the installation instructions are included in the Jomsocial package, CB's do not need it but to avoid disappointment like your's , I'll add one. Also in the forum, the instruction post you might have missed is a sticky post and has over 1300 views. Feel free if you still need /want some help.
Fifteen bucks is not a lot to spend to experiment, but there really ought to be a demo of it on their site, not just screen captures, so we can actually SEE it in action before we buy it.
Also, I would have paid significantly more, if only the following features were included:
1: Better back end control over default settings. Autoplay default is a real pain to a lot of users. Looping automatically on is also not desirable for users with only one song. Admin should have the ability to shut these off for all users by default.
2: Only one play list. Would like to see ability to use multiple lists (e.g. for artists with albums).
3: Really need the ability to change where and how it appears in profiles on CB. Would be nice if it could show up in a tab even.
4: Put the user's controls in a hidden slide panel. It's a pain that all lower CB tabs are forced way down the page. Some sites use a lot of tabs so all can't be put on top.
Overall this is a very good plugin, but I have to be honest, I'm not sure I'm going to use it yet.
I do think it deserves the three stars I gave it.
For my purposes, it is average, and doesn't quite cut the mustard.
On the bright side, it looks to me like they are headed in the right direction!
Hi, Thank you for your review, let me clarify things you maybe missed.
1. We have a demo, actually 2 on nordmograph.com profiles and on demo.nordmograph.com for CB and Jomsocial profiles
2. we 're thinking about adding multiple playlists
3. As most CB plugins, you can publish it in evrey tab position available in CB profile page, tabbed or not, on top, middle or bottom of the page etc...
4. Users like it in the accordion, parameters are available fast and it has so many of them that having them in the backend user edition would be a pain (especially color parameters etc...)
Have fun and feel free to use our support forum if you need points to be clarified
Very simple to install and use, the player can be customized, it has many other options like autoplay, shuffle, etc. It can also send announcements to social networks and to a shoutbox each time a user uploads a file, very nice feature! I use it in my site were musicians upload their demos, so a shoutbox announces each time a new demo is posted, and this announcement goes to their Twitter, Facebook, etc.
It also supports both file upload and http links to remote mp3s. Upload/link limits can also be set or modified at the backend.
I wanted to optimize this player for the particular structure of my webpage, and I received a dedicated support which helped me solve everything in a matter of hours!
Congrats for the wonderful product and thanks for the support!
