You should start by never ever using any class in a package that starts with com.sun, sun or sunw. That includes sun.audio.AudioStream. The reason is that these classes are undocumented, and can be changed or even dropped in any next release of Java. Unfortunately, because programmers do not heed this warning, there are applications that stop working all of a sudden when a new Java version is installed. I myself found an application that only worked with Java 1.4.2_08. Even my 1.4.2_10 (at the time) Java installation refused to run the program. The cause, as indicated by the stack trace, as the use of one of these undocumented classes.

JMF is usually the way to go when wanting to play music and/or video in Java, but I found JLayer to be a little bit more intuitive to use.

For MP3s -as in the code above- I'd agree, but for other formats (like AIFF, WAV and MIDI) the Java Sound API might be a better choice, as it is part of the JRE. I'd even go as far as saying that unless the point of the application is to play MP3s specifically, it may be preferable to convert the audio files to a format that Java Sound can handle, thus avoiding having to deal with JMF. (Which, although functional, hasn't been updated in years, partly relies on native code, is not part of the JRE etc.)

The javax.media.bean.playerbean.MediaPlayer class (which comes with JMF) has methods to set/unset/check loop mode.

Which file format is that? Specifically MP3? Or would something else be OK as well?
