I want to show you closer very nice Winamp functionality - custom icons for extensions associated with Winamp. This functionality is brought to you thanks to 'Jump to File Extra' plugin (JTFE) by DrO. You can customise the icons, which are shown for files, which are associated with Winamp. To get it working, you must have installed Winamp v5.58 with JTFE v1.1 plugin (or higher).

Winamp Icon Packs are libraries that contains a set of predefined icons. This icons are displayed for files with extension that describes file types associated with Winamp. Icon Packs looks nice especially in newest Windows (it is possible to display 256x256px icons).

You can change installed icon library (or set it), using Winamp preferences. To enable this feature, open Winamp Preferences (Ctrl + P), navigate to 'Jump to File' > 'Extras' page and select "Enable 'File Types' preferences page additions". To change or set default Winamp icon library use dropdown list with installed icon packs. Note: Icon pack installer allows you to choose the default icon pack and automatically select all necessary options.

The "Enable File Types prefs page additions" option should be checkmarked (icon pack installation enables it). Additionally you have to move the 'File Icon' & 'Playlist Icon' sliders to bottom in "Preferences -> File Types". The currently used icon library, which allows custom icons for supported file extensions can be previewed on this preference page. You can open any folder in Windows containing Winamp-associated filetypes and see the icon(s) change in real-time.

There are already few Icon Packs that contains a set of icon libraries for Winamp. In this thread, you can see icon packs created by me and I hope other users.
