Then I had a problem with jQuery-conflict and got very fast support from the developer.
I can really recommend this extension and I will certainly use it every time I need a mp3-player!
There are tons of options in the settings for the plugin, btw! So it is easy to customize to your needs.
The component has a set of functions and interface very convenient for users. I am very happy the work and the support. I recommend this software for 100 % for all your websites. Anton thanks so much for your help!!!
Thank You too. I always help if i can.
Thank You too for using Commedia. :)
Initially it installs and works as predicted but it might not look quite as you want it or fit into your theme. No problem - every part of the extension can be customized BUT you really must study the documentation or you'll be missing out on much of what this very powerful, versatile music player can do.
One of the best features is that it permits the use of music files from almost anywhere and will take the information from tags or if you prefer, the filename. This gives it a serious advantage over many other players.
It works well with responsive templates although you must have regard for the dimensions of the player itself and be economical with the amount of information displayed if you want it to be 'mobile friendly' but this is another great feature! It gives you lots of choices...
My initial application was to create a 'jukebox' but I'm gradually migrating a whole music collection to use it and of course it can be used to play single items in a blog page - or several individual items on the same page.
The creator of Commedia has not overlooked what is often overlooked by others, namely, when you start to play a different track, the one already playing stops. Simple perhaps but essential for serious use.
So far I haven't found a way to make it 'auto-play' but no doubt this will be included at some point - or have I just missed something?
I haven't used the 'popup' player because I haven't got around to tweaking the layout but it's a useful feature to have.
Having started off with several reservations about this extension, I have come to love it and for what it costs, it is well worth the time and effort of making it work for you. I recommend it without reservations.
Best of all, the developer is happy to support it and takes all feedback or requests very seriously. Full marks from me!
Thank You too! :)
1) Commedia can get tags from mp3, wav, m4a and mp4-files, but can not to get ID3-tags information from file on external server (FTP, HTTP(S), DROPBOX). But follow news on my site, may be it will get them in the future too.
2) Commedia has autoplay too. See the demonstrations, please. ;)

Best support and extension for radiosite. It is worth much more than I paid for it. Playing radio stream - no problem, mp3 play from ftp - no problem.
