JBGMusic

February 5th, 2013

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 background music 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
* Fallback to flash player on older browsers
* Modify button look with CSS
* Allows you to loop background music/sound
* 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 publish the media controls
* Make copies (see faq) to have different audio lists for different pages.
* Audio/Music will continue on page changes. (Non-frame solution)
* does not require any modification of core module or any modules.

Known Issues: Audio resume is simulated only therefore pauses or skipping may occur between pages.

Plugin Feature list
* Ability to embed music in your content.
* Add the controllers, to have an alternative to reading, now your site is sight-challenged ready.
* Ability to autostart audio or give the controls to user.
* Have multiple copies in one document content.
