josdewplayer works superb with Firefox but does not work with Internet Explorer. I could not find a solution for it.
Owner's reply

It does. For a few hours an updated version contained a bug repeating the url for the mp3 piece. This has been corrected for a while. please redownload and reinstall.

This has to be by far the easiest player I have ever encountered. Simple installation, no complex settings just straight forward. Only three words to discribe it: BRILLIANT, SIMPLY BRILLIANT

Really neat bit of code, very easy to install --- but one draw back it is not W3C valid.

Any thoughts from the author to update to make sure it is W3C Valid?

All in all, veru nice work....
Owner's reply

I have uploaded an updated version where the & are now hmlentities and pass validation.
Remains the bgcolor parameter which, alas, is defined in the swf and can't be changed.

Takes up minimal space, very easy to install and configure. I needed to ad a song to a personal site on one article, and it could not have looked cleaner, or been more strait forward. Thank you for your work on this.

I have been looking for a simple player for a band website that I am building. I was really confused for a while but once I realised to follow the following steps

install the player
create an article
include the code in the article {play}URL of Mp3{/play} Song Name

(URL of Mp3 is the location of the Mp3 file, it doesn't need to be on the host server)

Then you can change colours to fit in with your site colours.

Job Done

I only needed to place a couple of songs for streaming on our site, and this extension fulfilled all of my hopes. Easy to install, and it worked PERFECTLY for what I needed. And, as another reviewer said--it's much prettier than the gray bars. Thank you for this super extension!

I just found out about the Dewplayer and I was really happy to find a Joomla extension for it.

The Dewplayer has a great look: very clean, simple, and much prettier than those grey-box players.

As for the extension, well, it just makes using Dewplayer a breeze. Install the extension, activate it, configure a few settings on how the player will look, and use the plugin code in your articles. That's it. I found this much simpler and quick to setup than other audio players!

Great little plugin. I like that you can upload mp3 to your Media Manager rather than having to ftp to server files. Just remember to add mp3 as a legal extension for uploads in Joomla global config
