Getting a mp3 file to play using javafx


I have spent hours today looking up how to get some form of audio in eclipse and have had trouble every step of the way. Currently I have something that should work but I get an error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: expected file name as argument at com.sun.javafx.css.parser.Css2Bin.main(

I have basically copied this from someone who had it working. I would like to say that the FX lib is added where it should be. I know this isn't fancy but I was just trying the basics.

package b;
public class test {

    public static void main(String[] args){
    String uriString = new File("C:\\Users\\Mike\\workspace\\b\\src\\hero.mp3").toURI().toString()
    MediaPlayer player = new MediaPlayer( new Media(uriString));;

I have also tried many different path names in case it was wrong with no luck, I also just tried to copy and paste the path name that i got in eclipse by going to properties ex: /b/src/hero.mp3. Help would be appreciated to get me out of this nightmare.

The files located outside the workspace should be included with file:// prefix. A simple example demonstrating the functionality is

public class Reproductor extends Application {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

   public void start(Stage stage) throws Exception {
       Media media = new Media("file:///Movies/test.mp3"); //replace /Movies/test.mp3 with your file
       MediaPlayer player = new MediaPlayer(media);;
