Fulfils all the needs to publish recordings of sermons on a webpage
Ease of use
It's easy to start with this module. Some customizations need some skills.
Documentation was used only to start with the customizations. The other things are self explaining.
I used this to: To publish recordings of the sermons as a list on the church website
Very thoughful and comprehensive.
Ease of use
Very easy.
Very reasonable and helpful.
It is not very completed, but you seldom need it. Just ask the author if you come into problems.
I used this to: Sharing audios and songs.
The basic features are all that many will need. Endless free options and plugins to extend the system,. I would prefer less use of Flash.
Ease of use
Excellent if you just follow the documentation. Overcomes much of the complexity of Joomla!
Developer monitors the user forums and offers prompt and useful suggestions.
Excellent for the basic features I have used to date. For some advanced features, you need to be an experienced Joomla! developer.
I used this to: Posting audio for weekly sermons at my church.

Does an excellent job

I am probably not using this software to its fullest potential but it does exactly what I need it to do according to my choices.
Ease of use
Even for me it's easy enough.
I did have some problems getting answers to a few queries I had but I did get answers.
I think this is the biggest downfall. I did not find that the documentation or YouTube videos good enough.
I used this to: Uploading our weekly church sermons so that they can be listened to on line or downloaded. Along with this listing series, speakers, dates, scriptures, and an introduction. I tested it out for a while and made a donation. It's a good idea to donate.
Does exactly what I require -- publish podcasts and make them easy to find.
Ease of use
Very simple to install and run!
Most free extensions offer minimal documentation at best. Mr. Hunziker offers excellent personal support by forum and email. Blessings!
I used this to: Publishing lectures and sermons on my church web site.
I've been using SermonSpeaker for years. I recently updated from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 3.3.3. I installed Sermonspeaker 5.1.2 and the search plugin 5.01. I had several problems but most all were mine! There was a simple bug, but they provided a fix almost immediately and it worked. I had to do something to say that the support is the best. I'm a retired programmer and I must report the great support they provide.
Typically I'd expect to pay for an extension that offers this depth of features not to mention the excellent developer support. I've only created 3 web sites and this one for our Bible Fellowship class was the most complex offering Family Profiles including photos and map to their homes along with Care Group and Birthday lists. SermonSpeaker added additional value to our members (about 170 in our BF class). One member creates a DVD of each weekly lesson and SermonSpeaker permits the video and the lesson notes to be viewed by any member at their convenience without waiting for the DVD.
We're a small church...but want to have our sermons available to listen. SermonSpeaker make it very easy to get up and running. AND when I asked questions, the replies didn't assume I knew everything about Joomla and provided suggestions to update templates to get it looking like I wanted. THAT, by itself, was priceless. Many times those more technical than me assumes I know what they're talking about when they give this or that suggestion especially in CSS! Thank you, thank you for helping this little church move into the new century!

Very Good
