Can't play .ogg files anymore

It's been like that for almost 2 years now. Always tried to find an fix, tried diffrent plugins. Even after reinstalling, reinstalling Windows I always get this problem that Winamp just don't play .ogg files anymore. I dont have this with any other media player.

Maybe someone can help me to finally fix this problem.

Diagnostic Report is attached.

just tried, no change
but I noticed that actually some .ogg files do play

Compared the files and saw that some play with the normal codec
and the ones that not play are: Lavf58.39.101 whoch seems to be some kind of FFmpeg

I think that's just how ffmpeg tags files when encoded with it, and given that ogg is just a container file it could be anything. if this is a music file it could be that it's using a newer codec that winamp plugin doesnt have support for... same if it's a video file but winamp has never been good at video files imo
