1.14(.1) requires Fabric! Loader and Fabric API

1.13(.2) requires Rift! https://minecraft.curseforge.com/projects/rift


Play your tunes (mp3/ogg/wav/m4a/flac) inside Minecraft.  Browse your folders (and drives) and play the songs in them.  Also opens playlists (m3u/pls).  Not exactly a necessary mod, but I was bored waiting for MCP to ever update

Press J while in game to bring up the interface.  In-game, you can press P for play/pause, or [ and ] for previous and next track, or - and = for volume down and up.  These are all bindable (and unbindable) in the minecraft controls menu.  Double click file to play.  Volume and position in song are adjustable.  Remembers your last used folder (and volume)

  • DONE add OSD (On Screen Display).  still TODO - improve it.  Show somewhere other than in chat perhaps, or display a graphic for play/pause/stopped or something
  • "Now playing" field in interface.  Probably an editable "Current directory" field as well so one can change directories without clicking through the whole file tree.
  • DONE maybe a convenience link in the root directory pane to the Minecraft music folder :)  You can still get there, through c:\users\username\appdata\roaming\.minecraft\assets\virtual\legacy\music(orRecords).  OMG.  Yeah definitely a shortcut to that haha
  • read id3 tags and ogg tags maybe
  • allows songs to be queued to play next (outside their normal order)
  • add shuffle button
  • possibly edit/create playlists

Known issues:

  • occasional troubles with VBR MP3s.  Variable bitrate may or may not work.
  • seeking in m4a encoded with lossless ALAC codec works fine, unless it is mono (not stereo).  If it's mono, seek breaks past 25% or so.  Just have to listen to it in order ;)
