It works like a charm, and is highly customizable.
And support is nothing less than incredible!
Fast, reliable and kind support.
This plugin - and this developer - was a lifesaver for me.
I have had my share of problems with crossbrowser mp3 players, but this one is absolutely the BEST!
This is a must for music communities, end users love the layout (great by default and customizable) and the possibility of interacting with social plugins and creating their own playlists.
The component is full of features, these are the ones I like the most:
- Great looking, customizable music collection layout and modules.
- HTML5 player, compatible with mobile devices.
- Not just songs in the album, but reviews, comments, videos, lyrics, chords and more!
- Advanced Statistics
- Integration with both Community Builder and Jomsocial
- Playlists, which users can save and share!
- Great support!!
Furthermore, you can contact the Chief Developer, Germinal Champs, to get any advanced/specific/unique modification you may need for your site (in a rare case that it's not already included out-of-the-box) via their Custom Service. I've done so and can't be happier with the speed, business alignment and results!
To sum up: a must for music communities, so great that by itself is a strong reason for choosing Joomla.
Long live Music Collection :)
Our site is designed to showcase our Production Music library and allow registered members to easily listen to and download tracks. We have thousands of tracks and hundreds of albums and this software is perfect for our needs. In fact it can do a lot more than we will ever need. Absolutely worth the money and the cost of customisations was very reasonable.
If you have a music site and are thinking about which extension will be best for your needs. Stop looking. This is it.
Speaking as a beginner, it was dead simple to install and get up and running with no issues! This has been largely due to good documentation & well developed software with an intuitive and logical user/admin interface. Unfortunately, this could not be said about all of the extensions I use on my site.
The only time I've ever really needed help to do anything inside MC, has been a matter of customising it as opposed to having any issues. On that note, the MC forums are incredibly active with lots of user input as well as awesome help from Germi (Mr. Music Collection) whenever required. Furthermore, Germi has always gone the extra mile to help with queries relating to customising the component/modules to suit my needs - despite this being outside of the scope of traditional support!!!
Over the course of the last 2 years I've become quite proficient in Joomla, custom coding and alike which can be attributed to the unparalleled level of support!
Joomla Music Collection is QUITE SIMPLY the ONLY media manager you'll ever need to manage music and video inside your Joomla community - however large or small!
Best of all, you don't need to break the bank to get it!
To sum up, MC is;
Robust, Well-developed, Well-supported, Highly-customisable & EASY TO USE!!!
Want to serve music & video in your site? Look no further than Music Collection!
Then ever since i have had any problems or hurdles difficult to jump, the jms team have been overwhelmingly helpful!
I actually emailed them saying "i wish the whole world was full of helpful people like yourselves!"
We had some customization work done to adjust the layout to fit our specific needs, and the developer was very professional, created exactly what we needed, and the cost was reasonable.
I use Music Collection since 1 year now and I can confirm that it meets my needs perfectly!
The amount of modules and plugins and their configuration flexibility (features + css) offer a real advantage for customizing your music site to fit your needs.
In addition to having a high quality product, you can count on a 5 stars support service. The architect behind this extension also offers a customization service that makes customization options unlimited.
Thanks Germi for that great extension!
