Cincopa's Joomla MP3 player audio plugin is simple to install and configure on your site. It is available directly from the Joomla! Extensions Directory (JED) or from Cincopa website. Just download the .zip package and enable the plugin from within your Joomla administration panel. The plugin will add a button to your editor, and clicking on the button when creating or editing a new page or article will pull up the Cincopa application interface where you can begin creating your audio or music player. Adding a fully dynamic and interactive music player to your site couldn't be simpler and can be done in a few easy steps:
The Cincopa Joomla music plugin has seven free audio player templates of different sizes to choose from. Customize your options and preview your Joomla music player in another window before deciding on a template. Add images, offer your music for download, or protect it with a domain lock. Pro users have the option to remove the Cincopa branding from their music players ("Powered by Cincopa") and choose from several options such as autoplay, loop, repeat, and more. Simply choose your template and proceed to the next step.
There are three ways to upload your music files to Cincopa. Upload files from a URL on the web, or use the batch upload utility for uploading multiple files. Use our Desktop Media Agent to synchronize the files on your PC with your Cincopa account, or upload your files remotely from any portable device or smart phone such as the iPhone, iPad, and iTouch.
You will then need to choose your implementation. Several options exist at this point, depending on where you would like to embed your Joomla music player. You can choose to display your music on virtually any website or blog or as an RSS feed. Pick an option and Cincopa will generate the necessary code for you to copy and paste. Place it wherever you like your audio player to be embedded.
Add the Joomla music player to your site with a simple shortcode. The wizard will generate a shortcode which you can use to place it into any area of your site. If your website or blog was created using any other Content Management System (CMS) such as WordPress, Joomla! or Drupal, adding a music player is as simple as adding one of these shortcodes to your pages. The wizard can also create straight HTML so you can place your audio player virtually anywhere online.
Upload new music to your Joomla player at any time. You won't have to go through the process of creating a new player or generating new code. Simply upload your files and they will be added to the audio player you've already created and appear on your site instantly. You can add or remove files at any time and from anywhere including any PC, mobile device, or PDA once you've synchronized these devices to your Cincopa account.
