Old method, but good for building large structures.

Thats a good way to do if it you need something formed into pillars or shapes like that, nice. All you really need to make obsidian though is to have a lava spring, that being a block of lava that is not moving at all and is one full block, and to have water come into contact with it. You can do it the way shown in the video, or you can get buckets of lava and pour them into water, which will also make obsidian. The only hard thing is getting enough lava buckts.

Yup. It's called 'casting' obsidian, and the main issue with it is getting the lava springs to begin with, since you can't do an infinite spring like you can w/ water.

Hate to say it(but I bet I get ninjad), but this is kind of old, it is definently faster the mining the obsidian, but also perminently destroys a lava spring :D

Edit: oh god, ninjad 7 times!

You must use a diamond pickaxe.

An alternative would be, as inventory data must be stored somewhere, and I assume it'll be stored on the hosts computer.

All lava blocks directly touching a lava spring becomes obsidian when cooled.
You don't need to waste lava springs at all.
 sound effects are fucking annoying to do

No, it doesn't. Only the spring becomes obsidian.

This would take forever... well its a good thing since making an obsidian fortress should be time consuming.

Read more of the thread, you can mine obsidian with a diamond pickaxe, but takes something like 15 seconds to mine a single block of the stuff, as for your actual question, yes, once mined, you can, actually, pick the block up
