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()) );

That is exactly the code I was looking for.. ;)

Just in case you know even more, I am using openSuSE 10.3.. I did
convert the files in wav and they play just fine. But when I run this
code (I create a thread so multiple sounds can play simultaneous) I
get this error:

I'm not expecting you to answer. Just in case you know better (I hate
the sound system in linux).

OK.. Before you answer... Errm.. Linux worked! I didn't even touch it!
I just closed eclipse, started it and it worked..! God I hate linux
sound system. But anyways.. Thank you very much for your quick answer.
I'm using it exactly as you said (but in a thread).

It works the same way in any country.
