You can work around it with emulators like SheepSaver and Basilisk II.

But, at the risk of sounding like a zealot, this is the typical
example of how proprietary software platforms, and dependency on them
[which includes dependency on binary compatibility], will always bite
you in the end. The problem wouldn't exist if those media works had
been written as Web CGIs in Perl outputting HTML 2.0, or generating
JPEGs, for example.
