No, K-Lite Codec Pack does just help to WMP on Windows XP

For those people that want to bring out the H.264 video playback on Winamp, the K-Lite codec pack is useful in Windows Vista due to the demuxing process depends directly from Media Foundation feature. Ironicly, the AAC audio playback works on XP, specially on the audio streams.

Also, as an extra reminder, the Windows Media Format Runtime is the former technology that Windows used for Windows Media Player until Windows XP. Since Vista and above, it's replaced by Media Foundation, which actually makes usage of the H.264 and/or HEVC codecs.

TLR, Winamp 5.8 beta does not get improved with the installation of K-Lite Codec Pack, unless that you're using Windows Vista.
