The primary goal of metaudio is to provide a non-commercial Joomla component that offers an intuitive yet versatile user interface to manage metadata of audio recordings. The current version supports viewing as well as editing Apple-style metadata in m4a (MPEG-4 audio) files, and ID3v2.2 (read only), ID3v2.3 (read and write) and (partially) ID3v2.4 metadata in mp3 files but future versions will support additional container formats.
The tracks were uploaded and the link placed on the page...and away we went.
If you can develop this further to where a user can preview a track and then purchase online it would be fantastic.
Very well done. Great product.!!!
It was easy to install and instructions are clear on how to use it.
Also, a BIG thanks to the developer who not only gave a reply VERY quickly compared to other developers - some don't answer at all! He was also kind enough to assist me with editing the files when I got stuck wanting to change something.
So excellent product + excellent service!!
I do recommend this extension !
Although it has a lot of features and looks promising i'm a bit disappointed in compatibility and design.
metaudio comes with integrated third-party software. For client-side audio playback, it either uses SoundManager 2, or its own audio player implementation, written explicitly to improve upon the sluggishness of SoundManager 2 and address some of its robustness issues. From the review, it is not clear which browser interface is to be meant; the metaudio demo site uses metaudio's own player implementation. Furthermore, compatibility is a complex issue, often involving aspects not related directly to the extension. It is best to get in touch with the developer, where there is a possibility of mutual interaction.
Please do not forget that the purpose of a review is to inform other users about your experiences with the extension. It is not suitable for asking for support: the developer of the extension cannot see your e-mail address to inquire about specifics regarding your issue. For example, it is not clear which version of Joomla or of the extension you use, which is crucial as regards the matter. As the JED encourages you, contact the developer directly before you submit a review, they might be able to help you solve the problem.
