I'm trying to build a listening quiz for some of my students and I found a great site with lots of possible activities for them. But the files are in .wax format. Is there any way I can get these files to play on my Mac? Or is there some converter I can use to convert them to plain old mp3?

Flip4Mac is a plugin for QuickTime.

According to this pdf it supports the .wax file format.

Also a .wax file is actually a metafile which points to the actual media file that needs to be played so you cannot convert the file directly. For more information on this have a look here.
