Winamp 5.55 - Unable to read MP4 videos

December 2016


I have Winamp 5.55, the problem is that i can't watch videos in the mp4 format (sound output only), is there any solution?


In order to enjoy your MP4 movies you must switch to an input plug-in that supports the mentioned format, follow these steps:
  • Open Winamp
  • Click on the Options menu> Preferences >"Plug-ins" > "Input"
  • In the right pane select "Nullsoft DirectShow Decoder v1.08" and click "Configure"

In the window that opens, add "MP4" to the extension list (do not forget the semicolon in front), then click on the OK button
