Introduction

Multimedia, Multimedia Players

The mp3 Browser plugin for the Joomla CMS will create a table of every MP3 in a specified folder. It displays the ID3 information of each track with a link to download or play the file in the browser.

Long awaited updated: as of version 0.4.1 the playback defaults now to HTML5 and no longer to Flash.

Place the designated tag in any content item. The plugin will replace it with all the MP3s from that folder for playing or downloading.

Version 0.4.1 was tested with Joomla 4.0.0-alpha2 and is believed appropriate for use with Joomla versions 3 and 4.

Features:
- Create a table of MP3s in folder
- Show MP3 tag info, including cover art*
- Playback using browsers' default audio element*
- Flash playback as fallback (optional volume control*, optional other player)
- Plugin works in content, components and modules

- Smart Search indexing*
- Cover art and artist search taxonomy
- "No items to display" when appropriate*
- Rendering options for mobile*
- Mimicked pagination*
- Start at offset*
- Override configuration by authors*
- Multi-language*, Unicode support and non-default id3v1 encoding*
- Open source and gratis
- Filter files on regular expression*
- Sort options*
- Hide when empty*
- Show sub-folders*
- Anchor per MP3, used in search results*
- Option to limit download*

Improvements compared to the plugin that this fork was based upon are indicated with *


4.0.1 works perfectly


Posted on 06 February 2018
Functionality

As an mp3 player it works as it should.

Ease of use

Backend configuration is easy. Espacially for smart phones views.

Support

It takes a while, but it for free.

Documentation

Missing upgrade procedure, especially what to do if it doesn't run on iphone. (delete player source code helped)

I used this to: Radio records

Functionality

Now works fine with PHP7.1. Table titles do not align with columns below."Play", "Size" and "Duration" are all shifted to the left

Ease of use

Easy


Functionality

this works fine with PHP 5.x but causes a major failure of a site running PHP 7. There is an updated version (0.4.1) on github but not here

Ease of use

piece of cake

Support
Documentation

straightforward except for how to get newer version 0.4.1 required to work with PHP 7

I used this to: joomla 3.5.x with PHP 5.x,
Owner's reply: I believe that with the latest version, it is now working correctly with PHP 7. This is version 0.4.0, released October 5, 2017. Sorry for the long wait.

This does just what I wanted. Displays lists of MP3's with play, pause, stop and volume controls, and a download link.

Ease of use

I don't know what could be done to make this easier. Very straightforward.

Support

The plugin has a note that basically says don't expect any support. It's so easy, I didn't need any support.

Functionality

no working player with Firefox. Works with Opera, Chrome and IE

Ease of use

only download possible with Firefox

I used this to: presenting MP3 files in different subdirectories
Owner's reply: I believe that with the latest version, the download issues are largely resolved, and it should now work well, at least with modern browsers. This is version 0.4.0, released October 5, 2017. Sorry for the long wait.
