    Default Why can't I play sounds?

    I am making a simple game and I want to play sounds this is what I have, but it is not working! Any help is appreciated.
    package Game;
     
    import javax.swing.JFrame;
     
    public class Main{
     
    	private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
     
    	private final int HEIGHT = 240 ;
    	private final int WIDTH = (HEIGHT / 8 ) * 6;
    	private final int SCALE = 3;
     
    	private boolean load = false;
     
    	public static void main (String [] args){
    		new Main();
    	}
     
    		public Main(){
     
     
    				try {
    					java.applet.AudioClip clip =
    					java.applet.Applet.newAudioClip(
    					new java.net.URL("file://c:/res/hl2.wav")); //Won't work
    					clip.play();
    					} catch (java.net.MalformedURLException murle) {
    					System.out.println(murle);
    					}
     
     
    			JFrame f = new JFrame("Half Life 3");
     
    			//f.add(new Board());
     
    			f.setSize((HEIGHT - 3) * SCALE , WIDTH * SCALE);
    			f.setLocationRelativeTo(null);
    			f.setVisible(true);
    			f.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
    			f.setResizable(false);
    		}
    	}

    Try rewriting the code to be an applet and see if when executed as an applet it plays a sound.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    I have not tested your code and at this moment I have no time for this. But I can tell you a thing that is worth to know: the .wav file format is a quite complex format with many possible bitrates and codecs/compressions. It's very possible that your sound file format is one of those not supported by the Java framework.

    See WAV - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, you'll find a list of some formats with samples. Try these samples to verify if it's your code that is wrong or your sound file.
