The Applet and AudioClip class only play .AU files. Microsoft offers two solutions to play .WAV files when using the Microsoft virtual machine.
The Microsoft SDK for Java 2.0 and later includes a sample, DirectX3\dSound, demonstrating how to use DirectSound to play .WAV files from a URL. It is also possible to use the Winmm class to play a .WAV file from the local drive, although your program must be trusted.
The sample code below demonstrates how to use the Winmm class to play a .WAV file. This sample requires you place a .WAV file in the current directory and name the file "sound.wav".
For more information please see the Microsoft SDK for Java documentation, available at http://www.microsoft.com/mscorp/java/
