Java 1.4 introduced the JavaxSound API which can play a much wider range of formats; see

For MP3, specifically, you can use JMF. There pure-Java version of it wouldn't require the apple to be signed, and there is an MP3 addon for it.

In the future, please UseAMeaningfulSubjectLine. "applet" doesn't provide any hint what the question is about in a forum that's completely dedicated to applet questions.
