      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      I'm trying to play audio files via

      new MediaPlayer(new Media(uri)).play()

      This works with WAV files, but does not work with MP3 files. It also works with the 1 AIFF file I had on hand, and did not work with the 1 FLV file I had.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      On Ubuntu 16.04 (64-bit), with OpenJDK 8 installed, find an MP3 file and a WAV file. A freely-available pair is at http://soundbible.com/1746-Ship-Bell.html.

      Run the code I included in the Source Code section of this bug report. Before you do, change the 2 paths in the code to point to your audio files.

      When you run the code, you will get the error I pasted in the Actual Result section, and no sound will play, which is the bug I'm reporting.

      Now, toggle the comments in the code so it tries to run the WAV file instead of the MP3. Then run the code. You should not see an error, and should hear a bell sound (or whatever sound is in your WAV file.)

      Note: if you try to play a long file, you may hear the audio truncated after a second or 2. This is due to the simplicity of the test case I've set up, and is not part of this bug.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      The code should play the MP3 file and not throw an error.
      ACTUAL -
      Running this code via Gradle:

      $ gradle run
      :compileJava
      :processResources
      :classes
      :run

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      None with OpenJDK, though this does work when I tried an Oracle JDK.
