FAQ – RS Cool MP3 Player (Visualizer Not Displaying Correctly)

October 10, 2012


rs cool mp3 player

Extension Name: RS-CoolMP3Player | From: Chris Chapman

Subject: Flashing Visualiser

Chris Chapman: I have just installed your MP3 player on a site I am developing in Joomla. When I play a track, the visualizer just flashes, which is quite irritating! Here is the link: ###— HIDDEN LINK —###. Any ideas?

Also, is it possible to embed the player in an article, where I can have alternate tracks and text, throughout the article?

Many thanks in advance, Chris

Support Team: Thanks for your email. Please do the following:

1) Visualizer: Please find one option in the module parameter section called “Use Exact URL”. Please set this to “Yes” and then also set the “Exact URL” as your website URL.

2) Module in Article body: Please try this documentation: How do you put a module inside an article?

Chris Chapman: Many thanks. That has worked, and I have managed to embed the player into an article. One last thing; is there any way of increasing the vertical height to which the wave form will rise to? With the operatic tracks I am using, the wave form does not rise very far from the bottom horizontal. Any ideas?
Many thanks again, Chris

Support Team: The Visualizer wave totally work on the beat of the mp3 song. It is not possible to change that. You can try to use songs of different beat and you can feel the difference.

Chris Chapman:OK, thanks a lot.

    Hi Souvik

    Just installed and config’d and it’s thrown two blocks of orange warnings with this at top

    “Notice: Undefined variable: rsws_counter in C:\wamp\www\Joomla\modules\mod_rscoolmp3player\helper.php on line 103″

    This is showing in green print in both blocks
    “( ‘C:\wamp\www\Joomla\modules\mod_rscoolmp3player\mod_rscoolmp3player.php’ )”

    The Player is showing underneath but broken

    I would like to hide the Flash error message in safari browsers on iOS systems that don’t support Flash. How would I do that?

    Hello Souvik,

    I bought your nice joomla extension (RSCoolMP3Player Version 1.2)Is it available as a plugin ? I would like to place within the articles.



  4. Bertus Says:

    Hi Souvik , I really appreciate all the time and effort that you have put into this excellent extension .Many thanks !

    Is it possible to archive the songs . This will help to limit the play buttons on the page ,but still make it possible to listen to other songs that is in an archive .

    Hey there,

    I just installed your great mp3 plug in, i configured it according to the instructions, and i followed the instructions to embed it in an article, but all that shows up is the title of the player. Actually, when i inspect under the title in firebug, i see that the player is showing up in the code, but I can’t see it on the page! Any idea what’s going on here? See: http://www.jessicazuch.com/en/music



    • Souvik Says:

      Just check your link. All mp3 players are working and playing. Please clear your browser cache and check it again.


      • Kellie Says:

        Thanks Souvik. I can see it in Chrome, but not Firefox. Even after clearing cache and doing a hard refresh. Any more ideas on how to fix?



        • Souvik Says:

          This is a css issue of your template. Please edit the following file as per the details below:

          File to edit: ” templates/wsnone2/css/foundation.min.css ”

          1. Change ” object,embed{height:100%} ” to ” object,embed{/*height:100%*/} ”

          2. Change ” img,object,embed{max-width:100%;height:auto} ” to ” img,object,embed{max-width:100%;/*height:auto*/} “


          • Kellie Says:

            Thank you Souvik, that totally did the trick! I never would have thought that the height attribute was rendering the player invisible. Much appreciated!


  6. Vadim Says:

    Hello! Thank you for such a good player! Please tell me how to make a display of Russian tags (UTF-8)? Which files need to edit and how to do it?


  7. Ruud van Eerd Says:

    Hi Souvik,

    I installed this great module today.
    The mp3player is visible on the top of my website with a height of 30 pixels. I only want to play one song, and therefore I would like to hide the “Song Name” and only display the “Song Artist”. Is this possible? So I only want to show one line of text in the display.


    Kind regards,

    Cool MP3 is a great extension!

    Unfortunately I am having problems with it in Chrome.

    I have changed the colours of my MP3 player to match my site using the options provided by the extension. When the site loads or refreshes I see the default ‘green’ MP3 player first before it loads my version.

    I have installed the MP3 player on the home page as a test for you to see.

    Any help to fix this would be appreciated.


  9. Busy Says:

    Hello! Thank you for your module. I have a problem now. After some working months now the module do not shows in my site, empty. What may be? Thank you!


  10. William Says:

    I am new to joomla
    how to download this extension?


  11. Anderson Says:

    Hi I installed the module, as seen in http://www.valmirelucas.com.br but it only works in IE, not Firefox or Chrome.
    I updated Flash Player to version 11.
    I appreciate your help.


  12. Jorge Says:

    The auto play is Yes
    no music in automatic load
    I have to click on play
    I can indicate that lack


    • Souvik Says:

      Please check in the module parameter section and make sure there are no comma(,) at the end of {Song URL}. When there are only one song the comma at the end is not required.


      • nalon Says:

        hello. sexy mod! :P i have a problem though
        i use it for only one track that plays onload of the page but it stops at the first 30 seconds or sth.
        i want that track to play repeatedly. its about 1 mb
        thank you in advance!


        • Souvik Says:

          1. If the module is not playing the full song, then please try to re-upload your mp3 files on your server once again. This may solve the issue.

          2. If you need the module will repeat the song automatically, unfortunately the option is currently not available in this module.


      • Wahyu Says:

        auto play not working, i have set YES already and i only put one song. what is the problem?


  13. Luck Says:

    is it possible that when the module is not loaded caches all mp3, only those you want to play? Defined the 10 tracks (about 3-4MB), and it seems to me that the module RS-CoolMp3Player caches all at once, which really slows down the page. In addition, the module works excellent.

    sorry for my english;)

    best regards,


    • Souvik Says:

      The player only start to fetch the song once anyone click on the play button (or in case of auto-play). In time of page loading the module only loads the player, nothing else.


      • Luck Says:

        Hi Souvik,
        Thank you for your reply. I also think it should be, but watching the network interface load when you open the page with mp3 but I dare say that something cache module. After a few minutes, to stabilize the connection, and the problem disappears.
