If you're clicking on the URL such that it launches a web browser then
you're going about it the wrong way.  That URL needs to be opened as a
location in your MP3 player (e.g. ctrl-L in winamp).  If you want to click
on a link in a web browser, you will need to make a PLS or M3U file with
the location data in it so that this is downloaded and opened by your
player.
