Playback stops on files without extension

On Windows 7 and with Winamp 5.666, it used to be like this: I could have in a folder audio files and among them notes in form of files without file extension. Because if I would load all of them to Winamp, they would appear on the Playlist, but would be skipped on the account of being in an audio format that Winamp recognizes

On Windows 10 and with Winamp 5.8, it is now like this: the playback stops when encounters such file. Also changing such extension-less files to e.g. TXT format does not help; because the Playlist loads them up, displays them- but not being able to play them chooses to come to a still. And that is just annoying and disrupting the flow of music / work



Why would the user want to have the playback stopped? Does the playback stops when a legit audio file that is on the Playlist but also happens to be absent from its location [because it was deleted or renamed]? The old behavior was user friendly, the new one is not. If anything, the second one could be turned into an option, but surely with the first being the default behavior
