We have seen a problem where the link won't open when clicked from Firefox browser. Whenever a web browser just won't open a link you can copy the following address and paste it into the "Open URL" item in your player. That will make the player take the address directly.
If you cannot make the sound play make sure the sound will play something else from the same player to determine wether it is the player of speaker setup. Sometimes (especially in Windows) the volume controls default to off. You have to go to the sound control panel to turn them up.
