Joomla! Extensions Directory



Multimedia, Multimedia Players

This plugin will create a table containing all of the MP3's that are present in any directory you specify.

  • Get this

Works in Joomla versions: 1.5, 1.6, 1.7 and 2.5

Use the tags in any content Item and the Plugin will replace it with a table containing all of the MP3's in that directory.

The Plugin displays the ID3 tag information for title, album name, track length and size. It produces a link to download the mp3 and an embedded mp3 player to play each mp3.

Great for displaying albums/podcasts the tags can be used multiple times on a page without a problem.

The table is configurable in the Plugin's parameters, allowing the download buttons and table row colors to be changed. The width of the table can be set or left blank for 100%.

Special thanks to the creators of the Dewplayer, http://www.alsacreations.fr/dewplayer for such an excellent mp3 player.

Great Extension

Posted on 21 October 2013

I love it when an extension just works and this one does without any issues. Could not get it to work with YooTheme Zoo items and notified the dev. Hopefully they can get this working but otherwise it is one of my new super tools for Joomla!

Just Excellent

I have been using this extension for several years on my church site. The sermon is recorded and FTP transferred to Joomla and BOOM!!! It's posted in the proper order and without any hassle at all. I highly recommend it for it's ease of use.

I'm using this plugin to provide sample recordings on the Homepage of the String Trio that I manage. It simply works, is easy to handle, and the GUI is just right.

I cannot reproduce the problems some other reviewers experiences.

great plg-in

Works as mention. Didn't have to modify anything to get it working. Would love to see a plug-in for joomla 3.0.!!! Keep up the good work.

Great potential but...

This plugin could be so great but as the other commented when you click download another window is open and you have to right click and "save as..", in IE and Firefox doesnt show the play button, in safari and chrome doesnt play at all...

good but crashes

Posted on 16 December 2011

If this plugin works 100% of the time I would give it 5 stars. Unfortunately out of 5 sites that I used it, on 2 sites it simply crashed. One site. displays TAGS but no links to audio files. Suppoer for this plugin is poor. I have sent 2 messages to the developers but gaven't got a response at all. The problem is that I cannot even remove the plugin as it doesn't show up on the list. I suspect I can remove some php files and make some manual changes in the database, then reinstall it, but can't get contact from developers to find out exactly what the manual procedure should do.

This is a lovely extension that suffers, as others have noted, from difficulties with downloading the mp3 files (clicking opens another window, whereupon the user has to right-click to download the file). Another reviewer has suggested a fix (adding code to the vhost directory). Linux hosting users can get the same benefit by inserting the following code by creating a file named .htaccess

ForceType application/octet-stream

Header set Content-Disposition attachment

Then upload the .htaccess file into your directory that contains the audio files. This will force files in that directory to download when the MP3Browser download icon is clicked.

Unicode not supported

easy to install n configure

but maybe you should consider adding support for asian character like chinese/japanese etc...

I am using the Joomla 1.6 version.

Easy to install, easy to set up on your page.

However, Joomla 1.6 version needs improvement. Google Chrome users will see the full mp3 browser layout but pressing the "Play" button will not start the music. Pressing the "Download" button will open a new page where the music starts to play. In order to download it, you have to right mouse click and select "Save As".

On Internet Explorer 9 (64 bit), the "Play" section/buttons do not appear. "Download" button will start the media on Windows Media Player or your default media player.

works great
