1.5 tags are correctly handled when migrating.

Including a new feature : playlists.

September 21, 2011:
Added ru-RU (Russian), corrected a parsing error in en-GB, put the example list in its folder

Following this post

The solution is to include the full url and not a relative path when SEF is on in the < location > of the xml tracks.

Version 1.7 is compatible with 2.5 and 3.x


This is a well designed extension that just works! The only lacking feature is the ability to style the player.

Ease of use

Install, upload media files, add article code and viola! It works.


Never needed it....but there is no ability to custom style the player. The style colors should be in an edit tab on the plugin.


Simple and clear.

Owner's reply: josdewplayer is using flash, thus why it is not possible to customise its display.

great plugin!

I've been using this plugin for more than a year. Now, I've implemented it for my new Joomla 3.1.5 site. Easy to input a mp3 player in between texts in articles is helping for audio illustration in my educational websites.

However, one suggestion to the developer is that if there would be an option to change the color style, it could be even better.

Simple and Easy

If I had remembered to enable the plugin, it would have been quite quick to set up. The programming has not fault in that.

This is a very simple, relatively unobtrusive way to put audio in your articles. Simplicity is GOOD!.

Simple But Effective

This is a bare bones audio player. I use it on a client's website who has longer articles with multiple mp3 examples throughout. For my purposes, only a small player such as this would work, otherwise the articles would become too bulky. While not very configurable and limited, this player does what it is supposed to - no less and no more. If you need a stable, reliable and easy to use player, this will do nicely. Recommended.

Easy and works perfect

Just a single comment. No problem when installing. Works perfectly on Joomla 2.5. An attractive look (simple and discrete as anyone could expect).

Thanks for this plugin

Very good and visually slim player.

The only issue : no way to get it play a list.

The xml is well formatted as explained, the track title and all the tags of the mp3's are displayed (so the path to files is ok) but no way...

Owner's reply: Please expose your issue on
List is working Ok, i.e. it could be due to an error in your settings.

Excellent, except...

I love this plugin, except that it doesn't appear when I use my I-phone to view my site. I wonder if it is not compatible with mobile technologies.

Really good!

It works finje in internet explorer but not in other browsers. Is there a reason for?

The program is really good, and I have a lot of fun that it's working.

you want to use it in a content?

Just take it, works fine and is easy to be installed, even in J1.7.3

It only lacks, if you want to use it inside a custom module with the attribute "prepare content" active. There it will show up even correctly , read the xml correctly and show titles and that it is playing correctly, but you will not hear the music.

Some hint for you, infograf: If i open additionally a content (with this player) and start/stop playing a song there, then the custom module player will work from that moment on until i leave the content page.

Of course, I would appreciate it, if this works too ;-)

Owner's reply: Better talk about this in the Support forum (link above).

Anyhow I do confirm the issue when the custom module is assigned to a sub-menu when using some specific 3pd extension menu module .
Here I got the issue with ARI Ext Menu. It looks like the js used is the culprit.
Please test on a parent menu item.

Prefect and simple

I wanted to add my image, text and links to go with the Mp3 player, and have multiple Mp3's on the same page.

This plugin made it so easy, just paste the code with the root/mp3 file and that's it. It's small, clean and simple. Brilliant.
