I need to make an mp3 player into an applet. Any ideas ? (Note it has to be Java 1.1)

That's going to be a pretty tall order. Why can't you use the java plug-in and develop against the 1.4 jdk? or at least 1.3...something more modern.
The java media framework might be of help to you, but not under 1.1. You could try building your own, but you're going to run into security issues, since you can't open mp3 files on the user's local machine unless you specifically have set this up ahead of time.

Rob,
I've been resisting this one all day, was gonna say something like "Good freakin' luck." Nice to see tact and diplomacy in your reply.

I know this is not going to be easy. I can not download any plugin or extensions, it's an applet. The files are loaded form the site, so there will be no security problems.
I simply don't think this is possible, but I wanted to know if there is something like this on the market.

The sun plug-in for java 1.4 can automatically be downloaded and installed in the browser. You still code your applet like normally. But in the html file, it will check to see if the user has the java plug in and if not, it will download it and install it and now you can run 1.4 applets.
This really is the best solution to your problem. You can then use the Java Media Framework to play mp3 files from the server.
