File formats list for Winamp

Does anyone have a full list of file formats supported in Winamp? But with divide between audio, video and playlist? I need to have such 3 lists, with proper separation between different kinds of files

Or maybe there should be even more categories? Because if by "supported" is not meant "playable" [media], then also there are [I reckon] lyrics [for karaoke] and visualizations [for that feature that I last used around the year 2000]?



Under the

Options > Preferences > File Types > Recognized File Types

there is a list - but it does not tell which file is of what kind; and it is not even alphabetical

Do you mean a vanilla install of Winamp without any third-party plugins for additional media support?

I think this requires a plugin as I didn't see anything in any of the preferences windows that could do what you're asking for.

Would you like it to just display separated lists or to export it somehow?

I just did a review of both the input plugin API and the general API available for all plugins in the Winamp SDK. I could find nothing that would differentiate file types (based only on file extension) between audio only and video files. There is an API in the extended file read functions for differentiating video and audio files but it only works with an actual live file, it doesn't do types by just extension only, and not all input plugins (mostly third-party plugins) support it.

As of right now all I can do is get supported file types/extensions and playlist files, with no differentiation between audio only and video files.

No thank you, as this would add chaos and incorrect data to my quest. Although- please do paste this list here, for futer reference / purposes

Does any one else has anything to add?
