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.

    @Terrenz: Go

    Is it a plugin? Can you provide a link for it?

    @OnfireNFS: Go

    It is not compatible with CustomMusic. If you want to store files on your server, use SoundCenter v0.2 instead. But please understand that I will not give support or do updates for old versions.

    Is the soundcenter client compatible with the custom music plugin? I perfer to use custom music because I can save the music files on my server computer. If they are not compatible could you please post a link to the client for custom music? Thanks

    I cant get it to connect to my server even though I know both UDP and TCP are forwarded.

    Please make sure that UDP traffic is not blocked. The plugin port must be forwarded for TCP and UDP. Go to the "General" tab in the client and check all "... active" checkboxes. Set the volume to 100. Go ingame, type /sc status - it will print a list of all stations that should now be playing music in your position. Remeber their id and go back to the client and open the "Stations" tab. Select the one of the remembered stations and make sure the "Mute station" checkbox is not checked. Then click "Edit station..." and set the priority to 1, the volume to 100. Check if there actually are songs listed in the songlist. If you're still having issues, please enable the debug mode in the plugin config and the client's general tab and try again. Check for any errors and send me the server and client log.

    First off, I'd like to thank you for creating such a great plugin, but I am having some problems. I am perfectly able to play songs via the client and /sc play, but even when I add songs to a playlist for a station, whether a box, area, or W/G region, they do not play. What may cause this?

    @bbayu: Go

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