Active Movie and *.au format files

When downloading sound files from the Britannica site of the *.au format the active movie option tells me that the "class is not registered".  If I store the file on the hard drive and double click on it the Microsoft NetShow Player tells me "The specified stream type is not recognised".  Is this a problem with the file type or have I a problem with my Active Movie setup?  The Active Movie was downloaded from the Britannica installation CD Rom.  Any offers of help would be appreciated
