Unable to Read MP4 Videos in Winamp

A number of Winamp users have found that they can't watch videos in the MP4 format (there is a sound output option). This quick fix should resolve that issue.

Solution

In order to enjoy your MP4 movies you must switch to an input plug-in that supports the MP4 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
