We are pleased to announce the release of the new version of JBGMusic.

Let your Joomla site be heard! This is a simple way to add continuous background audio to your Joomla site. To install module, just download, setup your audio files, setup the module, publish and voila! you have sound.
To add to content use the plugin version or install both, combine and enjoy!

Module Feature list.
* New version uses HTML5/CSS3 Audio tag
* Allows you to loop background music/sound
* Place all audio in a folder and choose the folder
* Put a list of audio files the module can choose from, so have different music everytime!
* Random Play or create a playlist
* Shuffle Play
* Very unobtrusive, you wouldn't even know it's there.
* For more control, you can have have a full player or have a simple player.
* Make copies (see faq) to have different audio lists for different pages or within the page.
* Audio/Music will continue on page changes. (Non-frame solution) (* as of 2020 - this is subject to individual browser policy restrictions. see faq)
* does not require any modification of core module or any modules.

Trying to reach you

Posted on 04 September 2017
I'm getting deprecation errors for modMusicHelper.
Ease of use
The installation went well, mostl,
but your contact form at isn't working. Can you give me a good way to reach you?
I used this to: right now, a demo site

has anybody an idea how its possible that the player don't start again when i change the page on my website? please help me! THX
Ease of use
very easy
Owner's reply: Hello, what seems to be the problem. Please do contact, so I can help you out with your issue.

doesn't work

Posted on 02 November 2015
I used this to: was going to use for background music, but doesn't work....
Owner's reply: What is the issue you are having, so I can help. I can't help if you don't contact me.
Works right out of the box. Crosscompatible with all browsers.
Ease of use
It is very easy to use. If you wish to style the module, you'll need to know some basic CSS
There is a small FAQ section, that's it. No reply from developper in weeks time.
Since it is so easy to work with, there is not much documentation needed. The FAQ section is sufficient.
I used this to: I can not use it, since developer does not reply with license code.

DO NOT donate if you wish for a license code to remove the backlink. The developpers businessplan is not constructed to sell licenses, it simply askes for donation so one can not ask for refund in Paypal.
Owner's reply: Hi, Tom, I apologise for the bad experience you have had. I never received an email regarding your issue, please email me at I normally answer back within 48 hours.

Some things don't work so well such as it only looks right when it's transparent. Other than that, looks good.
Ease of use
Had to read the FAQs after trying to make this work but it worked eventually.
Despite having to read the FAQs for information, it was pretty thorough.
I used this to: Background music for my anti-bullying website as a way to help people calm down.

Opera browser compatibility

Hi !!!

Good module, but not working with Opera browser. Please FIX this problem.
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!


Posted on 23 September 2013
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!!!

Great module and great support. I had an issue installing (my own mistakes, not theirs) and they fixed it for me. Love it!
