Of course not. ;) I just found it like this. I could easily convert it
in wav.

Then try something along these lines (it
is even easier for an applet)..

import javax.sound.sampled.Clip;
import javax.sound.sampled.AudioSystem;
import javax.sound.sampled.LineUnavailableException;
import javax.sound.sampled.AudioInputStream;

import javax.swing.*;

class PlayClip {
  public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
    URL soundLocation = new URL(
    // can use one clip many times
    Clip clip = AudioSystem.getClip();

    AudioInputStream inputStream =
      AudioSystem.getAudioInputStream(soundLocation); inputStream );

    // kludge to prevent the main() from exiting.
    JFrame f = new JFrame();
    f.setDefaultCloseOperation( JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE );

    f.getContentPane().add( new
      JLabel(soundLocation.toURI().toString()) );
