I had Minecraft 1.7.4 there were ogg files of all music (including records like cat.ogg calm.ogg) But when I uninstalled 1.7.4 and installed 1.8 those files disappeared . 1.8 has those music because when I play the game put music disc in jukebox I can hear the music. but where are the ogg files ?

In 1.7.4 they were in assets folder


How to find a sound file

  1. Open \.minecraft\assets\indexes\<version>.json. <version> can be 1.7.10, 1.8, 14w25b, etc.
  2. In the index file, you can find a organized list of assets and some informations(hash and size) about them. cave9.ogg for example,

    "minecraft/sounds/ambient/cave/cave9.ogg": {
    "hash": "b463fa47816fe9a5dfe508093150e647403e4db6",
    "size": 27096

    has a hash value of b463fa47…. Remember first 2 digits(in this case b4).

  3. The actual sound file is located at .minecraft\assets\objects\<first 2 digits>\ with a filename being a <hash> without any extension. For example, cave9.ogg is located at .minecraft\assets\objects\b4\ with a filename b463fa47816fe9a5dfe508093150e647403e4db6 without extension.
  • Yes i saw many n number of files without extension. Will renaming them to proper name will give me the ogg file? – Fennekin Jan 5 '15 at 15:49

    Just in case, I recommend that you make a copy of that file and rename it. The content of the file is already proper ogg bitstream but some music players don't play them properly when extension is not specified. – QbsidianH20 Jan 5 '15 at 15:53
