To allow playback on Windows XP, you need to install the correct software in addition to JavaFX.
Once the system has been upgraded to meet the minimum requirements for playback of a particular type of video encoding, then playback should work fine.
See the JavaFX Media portion of the JavaFX 2.2 System Requirements:
Note, m4a is just a container file and data streams inside the container format need to match a supported JavaFX format for playback to work:
Some approaches you could take:
- additionally encode the media in VP6 format and fallback to VP6 playback if H.264 playback fails.
- use a 3rd party player like VLC.
- don't bother supporting Windows XP video playback.
- direct a browser to a divx install page if playback fails (http://www.divx.com/).
