We are an official reseller of JW player. This extension ships with the licensed version of JW player 5.10, you do not need to install it separately. Owners of a JW player license get a discount.
With the module, you can display video and audio wherever on the page. With the plugin, you can include audio and video directly into the article via an insert button at the bottom of the editor, or you can write shortcode directly in the article itself. Use default settings to minimize the workload.

The download link feature can be placed anywhere, whether in a module or an article in between text, etc,... It generates an expiring URL so that the link cannot be used elsewhere. Very useful for PDFs, docs, rich media for download, any file residing on S3 amazon is supported!

Our experienced support team helps you out when you have problems configuring CloudFront! You get one-to-one support, online manuals and tutorials, a forum to interact with others, and we can give you advice on how to use S3 Amazon effectively.

This extension works with most membership systems and is excellent to create a video/audio portal or training/coaching series or portfolio sites.

Our extension does support htlm5 fallback. You probably made a mistake. Please contact our support to resolve this issue: support@footprintaddons.com

All the best,

I was planning to hire a programmer to write a program that would stream my videos and make the links expire and then I discovered S3Media Stream. It does everything that I wanted and more.

Best of all is the support. Rudolf offers the gold standard in support. I had no experience with video streaming from Amazon cloud and he stepped me through everything that I needed to know. He responded quickly to every question that I asked and my videos are now streaming beautifully.

Thank you Rudolf, I could not have done it without you!

I bought this component to import streaming video on my website via aws s3, however I encountered some problems while setting due to my unfamiliarity of aws. But, S3MEDIA STREAM's support is pretty excellent! They guided me and helped me patiently until everything is done. If someone is finding something combined with jw player or aws, take my suggestion that S3MEDIA STREAM is the best!

This software was a life saver for me. I never would have gotten AWS & CloudFront to work for me without it. The only thing more amazing than the software is the people behind it. Rudolf is truly an amazing guy. You would have to go to Disney World to see this level of customer service. He acknowledge my concerns almost immediately and he went over and beyond the call of duty to help me with issues that had nothing to do with this software. The software was perfect straight out of the box. I was the only problem. Not only were my issues fixed, he also educated me so that I could fly this thing solo. It's worth five times the cost in avoided frustration and hopelessness. Thank you so much, S3 Media Stream... you have a fan for life!

I purchased this software to enable us to be able to broadcast sermons via audio and video streams. I was very impressed with the support that I received to make this possible. Thank you! Working with amazon web services can be a challenge, but with the support that I received I am now able to set it up properly to work with AWS and we will really enjoy using this product for multiple purposes. Thank you!!

just agreeing with the other reviews. this extension developers is awesome and responsive. well worth the price. helped get my s3 cloud streaming project going. thank you much.

I have been absolutely delighted with this extension, it works brilliantly and the support is second to none.

If you are not familiar with AWS, it can be frustrating as hell.

Fortunately the documentation and training doesn't just cover the extension,it goes a long way to getting you going with AWS too.

All it takes is for just one setting or process not to be done and it won't work.

Rudolf the designer is incredibility helpful, and very knowledgeable, his service is second to none.

I have no hesitation in recommending this extension.

For me the mark of a good extension is when you get great support to go with it.

Setting up streaming from Amazon S3/Cloudfront isn't the easiest task in the world,

Rudolph the developer went beyond his remit in helping me with issues on S3 that weren't strictly to do with his Extension at all but more to do with me doing things wrong on S3. The extension isn't perfect, there are a few minor bugs but nothing too problematic and I have faith they will be fixed given the quality of the rest of the support I received.

If you need to stream or download content from S3 via protected links on your Joomla site then this is the extension for you.

It's a cliche, but I never leave reviews of extensions. However, in this case, I've had extraordinary service, and an extension that does exactly what it's supposed to do, and does it well.

I've never used video streaming before, so took time to read and review the documentation, and set up the system correctly. When it still didn't work, I had a private Skype call outside of working hours to help make it work.

Once fixed, we were up and running in no time! I cannot recommend these guys too highly!

Component is good. It has really good potential!

However, it doesn't work on some joomlart templates for Joomla 1.5.

Somebody should fix it.

Owner's reply: Hi Joseph. I'm sorry you have issues with a template, but if you do not tell us, we cannot fix it. So, if you want this resolved, please contact us via email.
