Works very good, very easy to use and the only free module I could find for playing music on the background of a website.
They respond very quick if you leave a question so KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

Very very good!!! Does exactly what they say and work perfectly. Easy to install!! I seriously love this extension. I can't say I agree with demanding a payment to remove the "powered by" backlink..seems to go against open source spirit. Other than that great work guys!!!

The onyl one working of this kind for joomla 1.6 and above :D
Now with support for all browsers with mp3/ogg is also smarter!
I just have a problem with non-flash mode of the player, having big square buttons with rounded borders with a green joomla banner on the corner instead of the player buttons, and on mouseover they becomes a little bigger. Am i the only one with this problem?

Thank you for reviewing JBGMusic. Unfortunately, we can not test the module with all the modules/plugins/templates for Joomla.

We can try to make it work for you if we receive a support request from you.

I would say the jbgmusic module is a cut above the rest in terms of the auto start feature when you navigate your site if you enable that feature.

there is still room for improvement but it was worth my purchase.

Thank you for you great work, the module working without problem.
But you shouldn't encrypte the code.
Your work is very useful, but I can't / won't use unknown codes on my sites!
Owner's reply

Hello, thank you for evaluating our module. The code was obfuscated not to hide anything but to prevent unauthorized removal of the backlink. We guarantee that the code is clean of anything naughty.

I've tried several modules and plugins for audio playback, but this surpassed all in simplicity and effectiveness. I downloaded, installed, configured and ready: it worked immediately without problems!

I wanted STRICTLY a background music app for a website, and this one DID THE TRICK so easily. Tiny download, simple to install, VERY EASY module parameters... and BAM! worked like a charm!
Keep up the good work!

Small and light. Does not eat CPU resources. The best for backgroung music. Be aware of using large and massive MP3 files - that could interrups smooth playing when changing pages. If you are looking for playlist support and operation, i'd probably recomend another product. This product is for a smooth backgroung music for an entire site.

I was looking to have a short 30 sec audio ad play upon the entry to my site, and this module was the PERFECT match! It was super simple to install and setup. I had it working in only a matter of minutes!

Not only this extension is great and really easy to use, but the developers are very fast and pro to solve a problem (my mistake). I recommand twice if no more.

I have downloaded this extension and used it on a website built for one of my clients.

Installation and set up was a breeze.

Background music worked well.

HOWEVER, after completing the development I have checked the validation which came up pretty shocking - as 11 errors, all in this extension.

So had to uninstall - what a shame. If it would validate it would be 5 star product!
Owner's reply

Hi, reviewed the code, and I have added modifications to the code so that it conforms and validates according to

Please see demo page.

Hello, you may want to check out the latest version 1.5. I have changed to a flash player and audio should continue between page changes.

I really agree with analographi
Well, its a music player, that is ok! Thats what it is and doesent differenciate from many others.

I would like to have a solution for background music which does not restart every time I click on a link on my site. Is there any solution to listen to the song while browsing (and clicking sublinks) at my website?

Well, its a music player, that is ok.

But it's totally useless for real background music because it does restart the music everytime the user navigates somewhere else within the site.
