Better Records adds the ability to download your favorite songs from the internet directly into your game, for all your friends to hear! And with no exiting of Minecraft to do so! Just craft a record etcher and input the URL to the song, and it'll download automatically when you play it!
Currently, there is a default of 10mb download limit on songs. If your file is too big, convert it to ogg if it isn't already.
Converting SongsCurrently, about 80% of mp3 files play correctly. You can use this site to convert your songs! (I recommend using ogg format) If the song you want is on youtube, you can use this site to convert the song to mp3, then use the link provided above to convert it to ogg.
Hint: Shift+Right click the record player or radio to open it.
Using the Frequency Tuner Pandora uses different methods to supply music, thus, it is impossible to use it in the radio. You can find many shoutcast stream urls here: http://www.xatworld.com/radio-search/For more experienced users: tunein.com
Navigate to a radio station on tunein.com
Right Click -> View Page Source
Ctrl + F or search for: "StreamUrl"
Navigate to the URL diractly to the right of that.
The resulting page should be a short string of text.
Copy the URL to the right of "Url"
Paste that URL into the frequency tuner!
A picture is worth a thousand words.Then, referring to the simple fact that videos are just a compilation of pictures that simulate movement; a 9 minute video is 540 seconds. Then, depending on the quality of the video, the frames per second will vary. Lets assume the video runs at about 30 frames per second: that would equal up to about 16,200,000 words. That's a lot of words.

Mind putting instructions on how to make a url end in .oog, .mp3, or .wav? Either my brain is having trouble grasping this concept, or even Google doesn't understand what I'm trying to do...
I updated the mod, it should be just as secure, but it doesn't have those specific requirements anymore. It just needs to link to an audio file. You can also toggle song downloading in multiplayer by pressing N.
For some reason when I try to etch a song from my Dropbox, it says something with "charset=utf-8 is not supported!". I can't see the entire error because the disk is over it. I don't know what went wrong, but I'm hoping there is a way to fix it.
That usually happens when you aren't linking directly to the file. Are you sure it's the actual link? Or dropbox's download page?
Edit: I found out that I had to copy the link of the Downoad button to get it to work. It's working fine now, thanks for the help.
Un-edit: Something went wrong again... When I put the disk in the disk player, it says: "Error: Could not read file." Might be something with my download, but I am confused now.
I don't know what it is, but some mp3 files don't like playing. Though, ogg works every time. http://www.media.io/ Will convert your mp3 file for you. I've been searching for other libraries to use instead of mp3player, not coming up with much that are small in size but functional.
Does the song saves itself in the server's minecraft folder? Is there any config options for things like max no. of songs that can be downloaded by a single user?
The server does absolutely nothing, it just handles the packets that are sent to the clients. The clients receive the play record packet, and download the song into a cache file located in .minecraft/betterrecords/cache/
