Excellent. Does everything I need, with clear and simple presentation.
Ease of use
Good intuitive interface for end user. easy to install for site Administrator. Many options for configuration, including customised CSS.
Quick, helpful, and effective. A technical problem sorted out with no delay. Highly recommended.
Online instructions and examples provided all the answers to my questions, and a configuration setup wizard was particularly useful.
Value for money
Highly recommended. The cost is low when compared with other similar extensions. Commedia was my first choice and I was not disappointed.
I used this to: After migrating to Joomla 4, I needed a low-cost, high functioning Playlist extension which was compatible with the upgrade, and most of the Joomla 3 Audio Playlists did not bother to upgrade. I use it to provide audio samples of classical and orchestral music.
It does what it says better then any other components I've used in the last 15 and some years.
Ease of use
Very easy to configure and use
The best I've seen. The developer looks into the issue, comes back with solutions and even fixes the problem for you on your on website.
Straight forward, great samples and demos.
Value for money
Very affordable and worth every dollar.
I used this to: I use it to play mp3's from local website folder. It does great job
Commedia scans your music folders and gathers them into a table. Each folder is as named so you can easily manage your files for the player.
Ease of use
It's just a simple line for the file path on whichever page you wish to set the player. I'm a complete novice but I had no problems with it
Anton is very helpful and replies quickly to explain or help.
There is a lot of useful stuff on the commedia forum, where most issues are dealt with and relevant documentation pointed to.
Value for money
Why did I spend months looking for a player that would do what this does when all i had to do was spend £10 to get exactly what I wanted?
I used this to: my album and all of the individual track on my website. It offers downloads that can be turned on or off as well as social media etc.
Ability to load complete FTP-Folders with mp3 files as playlists saved me hours.
Ease of use
Simple plugincode with extra Editor-Button. Can not be done easier.
Developer solved Issue with another plugin compatibility in no time - BIG thank you!

I used this to: A church website

This is a GREAT extension. I first had some problems with the plugin interfering with another player on the site but the developer took time and re-coded the player at no extra charge to make sure it works fine for my specific needs. Highly recommend!
