The key thing is you are using the old EOL WinXP which does not have the media feature packs as Microsoft provides to Windows Vista and newer.

You can see the more limited HTML5 you support with WinXP3 at https://www.youtube.com/html5/ as normally all checks should be blue.

With some work you may still be able to get HTML5 video to work in Firefox on the old EOL WinXP.
