Thread-topic: [CRTech] New XP install won't play url files
Sounds like a codec problem.  
Assuming that one, you have audio (i.e., it's not a sound card driver problem), and two, it's not a firewall/networking issue.  I'd suggest installing the K-Lite Codec Pack from https://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm; Fresh installs of Windows XP didn't (by default) include codecs for newer audio variants.

Do you have Windows MediaPlayer installed on it? It contains DLLs that support functions other than just itself. That could be the problem.  Just a thought.

Blessings!
