The support provided by the developer is way beyond average. My questions and issue reports get addressed very fast. Furthermore, the developer knows JW inside out and is always willing to help.
All in all, this an absolute must have in those projects where video broadcasting matters.
Another very impressive upside is the built in template system, which one can tame in no time just by following the default templates. The fact that it is seamlessly integrated with Joomla core makes good old com_content useless, while we can still use modules designed to work with it.
We are definitely before one of the most powerful extensions ever written for Joomla. I am seriously considering quiting com_content altogether in future developments. It feels like a downgrade!
Just had to convert XLS spreadsheets into CSV files, name and set the headers order properly, upload the CSV file and that was all. Immediately my CB and core Joomla user tables had the pertinent data stored.
I can even update the user data in edit mode every time the CSV file is changed (existing entries can be kept and new ones are added).
The latest version doesn't seem to support MySQL 4, but that's not really a show stopper these days. Highly recommended for time saving developers.
With customizable fields, AdsManager has allowed me to turn a "classifieds" script into a neat Job Board. Together with the PCS extension, one is even able to charge fees for ads. Stunning.
Last but not least, ethics. Contrary to a growing tendency among certain 3rd party developers, Thomas puts the GPL compliance banner above immediate profiting. An attitude which is worth praise and gratitude (in the form of a much deserved donation).
