With this plugin you can play .nbs files as noteblock sounds. You only have to put the .nbs files in plugins/ServerMusic/music/. Then you can get startet with hearing music ;) If the file has the name "music.nbs", type "/servermusic play music" or write a sign with "music" in the third line.

This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to

  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online

You are free to opt-out of submitting data whenever you wish. This will immediately stop sending data for any plugins that supports MCStats / Plugin Metrics.

    He meant using a command block (not the command on its own) with the @a selector, that will play it for everyone.

    Your advice with the command doesnt work!

    You can't use @a with this plugin!

    I installed the plugin regioncommand now so i can put the command for each player with @p when they enter a desired region and do sm stop when they leave the region. so this is a workaround but awful cuz i need a new plugin. isnt there any way to start the music for all?

    Hey there seems to be a problem if someone plays a song and then plays another one, the first one keeps playing and there is two songs overlapping. This is a problem as I was able to crash my server by using a auto clicker to right click on the sign about 1000 times. It would be nice to have it only play one song at a time :)

    Is NoteBlockAPI installed? Is the name of the folder "ServerMusic"?

    @FlOppythp: Go

    Is your server home hosted? It's probably because your server has to upload the music files to all your players, which is making it lag due to slow upload speed.

    This would be an awesome plugin if you could play a song list per world. DerekZil talked about a playlist. I would be awesome if you could play it per world
