Playing AudioClip in JavaFx

Hi Guys,

There is a project playing an mp3 Audio Clip but this line is throwing an error saying "java.lang.IllegalAccessError: class com.sun.media.jfxmediaimpl.NativeMediaManager cannot access class com.sun.glass.utils"

mApplause = new AudioClip(getClass().getResource("/sounds/applause.mp3").toExternalForm());

I tried the below line but gave me the same error.

mApplause = new AudioClip(this.getClass().getResource("/sounds/applause.mp3").toString());

What is the way around this?
