SoundCenter - Music, Sound Effects, Webradio and Voice Chat for Minecraft!

Version: v0.3

SoundCenter (formerly CustomMusic) allows you to set music boxes or regions that stream your own music, sound effects or webradio to all players in realtime. It also implements a simple voice chat for Minecraft.

To use the features that SoundCenter offers, you and everyone who wants to hear music and voice chat must use the SoundCenter client, which is running on
You do not have to download or install anything. The client is running as a java applet on the website. You will get a message with a link to the client when you join the server. When you follow this link, the client will automatically connect. - Could not be easier.

Here's a video that shows how to use the plugin (Thanks to @jithins):


  • You can set imaginary jukeboxes, cuboid areas or worlds and biomes as music stations
  • You can also use WorldGuard regions as stations
  • Stations can either play your own music/ sound effects, or webradio streams
  • You can use a command or the client to play songs for yourself, all players in a world, or all players on the server
  • You can use any supported audio file that is stored on a public webserver. Filehosters like DropBox will work as well.
  • Supported audio formats: MP3, for webradio also OGG
  • Everything is easily and intuitively managable with the client's user interface
  • Every feature is configurable
  • You can limit access with permissions

Extra Features:

  • Voice chat
    • SoundCenter adds a simple voice chat to your Bukkit server
    • You can speak locally (only players that are not far from you can hear you. Volume depends on their distance)
    • But you can also speak globally (The whole server can hear you)
    • You can disable voice chat on your server if you don't like this feature
  • many more to come

How does it work?
Okay so I have SoundCenter installed on my server, what can I do now? It's easy: When you login to your server, you will see a message with a link to When you follow this link, the SoundCenter client will load and automatically fill in the required information to connect to your server. Now you can add songs in the "Music" tab, or add stations in the "Stations" tab. Boxes, areas or WorldGuard regions can be created ingame via /sc set <area|box|wgregion>. That's easier, because the box will be created at your coordinates. You can edit all properties of your stations by pressing the "Edit Station" button in the "Stations" tab.

    the java applet is a separate client so unless the players dont enter the area at the same time its not in sync

    I like this plugin :)

    Is there a way to block other people from adding their own songs?

    Also, I found that the music is not synced throughout the server. (I tested it using different computers on the same network and it doesn't sync. Is it not made to be synced?)

    @cosmocaos: Go

    They should use the public ip of your router (it is the same for all computers in your local network). Your router has an option called port forwarding. There you can add a new rule to forward port 4224 to be to your host computer (tcp and udp).

    Actually you should have already done this for port 25565, if your friends can join your Minecraft server...

    Hello, quick and easy question, (I can't figure out by myself) The music is working for the computer that host my server, in this case in the sound-center applet I put as the server ip. Then a I also can make it work in another computer inside the local network, in this case in the sound-center applet I put (the local ip of the host computer) as the server ip.

    But for my friends outside the local network, what server ip they should use ? they also need to open port 4224 ? The public ip of the host computer ?

    I'm not yet planning to provide an api, but I will add sounds on events, so death, level up etc. will be possible.

    What a great plugin.

    Do you have a plan to provide API?

    If can, I wanna play music in specific situation for example, under y30, level up, death and so on.
