It may be an idea that when everyone votes to just automatically play the midi. It's annoying to be alone and have to wait for the vote to finish.

Do you mean adding a function to vote for disabling the music voting?
What I wonder is if there is a way to remove the vote system completely. I have been trying to just look at the coding of the "game" and it seems I can't do much with it... Is there a way...?
Not disabling it, unless you mean disabling it after all the votes go in. I'll explain what I mean.

2 people are in the server. One plays a midi. Both vote yes, but the time until the midi is actually played is 1 minute (until the vote has passed)

The reason I don't think that this would be a bad idea, is because (to my knowledge) people logging in do not hear the active midi. Soooooo yeah.
Nah, what I mean was a way for me to disable the vote completely. Cause yeah, we are two in my room and waiting for vote is annoying...

I guess I could add a toggle for the administrator.
All done.
Another suggestion for the music. You know how in Browse Shared Music it has Play/Stop/Download? I suggest an additional button that has [Repeat]. Clicking repeat allows you to listen to the midi on repeat until you choose to stop it. This is mostly for midis that come from video games that are say 30-60 seconds long or just sound better when looped (If you are familiar with video game music, you'll note that they usually end on the V if they're meant to be looped, so they never "truly" cadence)

I assume a follow-up question would be to ask if it should apply to "Play Now" and frankly, I say no. We already have to click yes or no when someone plays a midi, to offer another "Would you like it to repeat" seems silly for two reasons. 1. If you've never heard it before, you probably don't want to repeat it until you know you like it. 2. I am in favour of "one click" interfaces. Adding another box to click just seems annoying.
