Waiting for technology to catch up

Though this product works sometimes, when there are updates, the changes are intense and cause the extension to not work. I've been using this since it was first launched and the only version that worked was 1.0.5. Since then, 1.0.6 and 1.0.7 do not work on any mobile device nor desktop OS. 

 I use Spry, Dreamweaver CS5.5+, Apple Snow Leopard and Apple Lion. I test on multiple Droid phones, tablets, Windows phones and PCs (multiple Microsoft PCs and Windows browsers), and all apple devices, including iPad 1 and 2, iPhone 1st gen, 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S and all available laptop/iMac browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, etcetera.

 I was able to use version 1.0.5 as a main player on a popular music site for quite some time. When browser extensions became the norm, visitors could no longer use the player as was incompatible with browser extensions. With the releases of 1.0.6/7, this made all of the progress obsolete as the player stopped working, all together.

 The player is unreliable at this time (HTML5 is not widely supported at this time as well). Customer Service is spotty. When you purchase, keep in mind that the instructions are mostly bland and support is challenging to achieve.

 I love the product's potential and I believe in the near future that this will be a fabulous product and work as advertised. Today, 2011/2012, the product does not work as advertised.

 I keep a page working of each latest release. where I follow the step-by-step instructions for the basic player. Learning to build a custom player (as shown in the advertisement) is a dream that I would love to have come true. 

Terrific and SO simple

I can't recommend this extension highly enough. It is robust with features, yet so simple to use. If you need iDevice-compatible audio, this is the way to go. Thanks DMXZone - keep them coming!

Great extension!

This is a great extension for playing mp3 files on a web page. Easy to install and use and it is trackable using jQuery or Google Analytics. Much better in that regard the the flash player I was using. Five stars from me!
