I'm not sure what you mean by 'binary data', but I set up a stack and 
imported a .wav file into it
which I named 'xxx.wav'. The stack contains a single button with the code:

on mouseUp
     play audioClip "xxx.wav"
end mouseUp

and it does exactly what I would expect it to do: plays the .wav file.

macOS 11.2 beta, Livecode 9.6.1

best, Richmond.
