Sorry you've had problems.

The application relies on JMF and unfortunately some JMF installations can have problems with MP3 playback.

I'm not familiar with JMF on MacOS X so the only advice I can give is to check your JMF installation with the diagnostic Applet (http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/jmf/2.1.1/jmfdiagnostics.html) and perhaps re-install JMF 2.1.1e.

I've not had these problems with JMF 2.1.1e and XP.
