Purchased and used various MP3 players but this one is the best without a doubt.

Ease of use

Verry simple



Functionality as promised. Picks up mp3's from directory and it can be played immediately from the site.

Ease of use

Installing was easy, just make a module and point it to the right directory. It's possible to make modules pointing to different directories

I used this to: Missed broadcasts from a local radio station.

Excellent plugin from an excellent developer with great and very fast support!

Simply the best!

This is the first time I'm reviewing a Joomla! extension and I'm doing it just because I liked MP3 Browser Fork very much! It solved all of the problems I had trying to show my mp3 files! It's simple to use and the "hardest" part is to create folders to store your mp3 files on your server.

This is the best music player for you content. Simple and straight forward. Thank you.

I am very glad that this plugin got a new life. Everything works fine. I was pleased with improvements and bug fixes in the code. Great job and great plugin.

Great pulgin

Tried many other mp3 player and by far this is the best. Install and work right away. Other had issue playing even if they stated it works for joomla 2.5. Great work.
