Can Winamp 5.8 play H.264 video natively on Win10?

The release notes say that it now relies on Media Foundation for H.264 decoding; since that's a feature of Windows 10, it seems to be saying that Winamp 5.8 on Windows 10 should be able to play MP4/H.264 videos. In practice I can't get it to work. Audio plays fine, and a video window pops up, but there's nothing in the video window. Anyone know anything about this?

I don't usually play videos via Winamp 5.8 but I just tried it.
Plays MP4 videos OK on my WIN 10 system.
Cheers

Don't use Winamp play video, use mpv player.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing

Give Kodi (https://kodi.tv) a try, works great for me.
