Not necessarily. Those burned movies may just be in a standard Windows format like mpeg which doesn't require any third-party software because Windows Media Player can play them.

Any other movies you are referring to (Studio Movies? - do you mean commercial dvd-movies?) will need third-party software because XP does not natively support DVD-movie playback in Windows Media Player. You can either pay for "bells & whistles" playback software like "PowerDVD", or install the free "VLC Media Player" which is more suited to older computers since it uses much less RAM and requires less graphics power:

But the big "plus" in it's favour is that it's free. Why pay for something that a free application like this can do just as well.
