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 :)
The most user-friendly behavior should be to have the user's wall always inside the CB profile, and only the public wall to be outside.
Good support, good product, it just lacks of CB 100% compatibility and I can't use it :(
What can I say? this component has become the responsible for transforming my web in a living and interesting site.
More over, the support is excellent, just had a little issue and it was resolved within hours with a new release!
I totally recommend this component!!! it will take your community site to another level :)
I've tested other (free) solutions but I had either SEF or lack of flexibility problems.
It's easy to install and support is quick, it's definitely worth the price. This is the only dropdown article solution that works for my page (using SEF and single dropdown article list).
Very simple to install and use, the player can be customized, it has many other options like autoplay, shuffle, etc. It can also send announcements to social networks and to a shoutbox each time a user uploads a file, very nice feature! I use it in my site were musicians upload their demos, so a shoutbox announces each time a new demo is posted, and this announcement goes to their Twitter, Facebook, etc.
It also supports both file upload and http links to remote mp3s. Upload/link limits can also be set or modified at the backend.
