Both are correct, but the punctuation differs:That is the MP3 player which I got from my brother.That is the MP3 player; I got it from my brother.

This is the MP3 player (that) I got from my brother. "Which" is also possible. You should use "it" only if you make a separate sentence - you can link them with a semi-colon:This is the MP3 player; I got it from my brother.(cross-posted)

In general, adding an "it" in that location is a common mistake made by English learners. For example:This is the book that I read it last week. This is the book that I read last week. Did you take the money that I left it on the table? Did you take the money that I left on the table? That is the man who I saw him yesterday. That is the man whom I saw yesterday. ​

In your example, the substitutive pronoun IT and the adjective WHICH both refer to the same noun 'MP3 player', so everything depends on how you are going to define the noun, either with the help of an attributive clause starting with WHICH or by a new sentence using the pronoun IT. In the first case, you will get a sentence and an attributive clause, while another option will result in two separate sentences. Compare: 'That is the MP3 player which I got from my brother' and 'That is an MP3 player. I got it from my brother'.
