Just to clarify...

The download url's are all referenced in the link provided:

Gabest's MP4 Splitter

Download the MP4 Splitter for Win2k/XP/Vista

Extract from the file
(eg. right click the zip, and select "Extract All")
and extract it to "C:\Windows\System32"
(assuming that's where your Windows OS and System Folder are....)

Then go to Start -> Run
Type: regsvr32
Click OK

You will get a confirmation that the Splitter has been successfully registered.

Note that Windows 7 & Vista users will need to run the Command Prompt in admin mode.
Go to: Start -> Programs -> Accessories
Right-click "Command Prompt" and select "Run as administrator"
Then type in: regsvr32

Download the latest version of ffdshow:

Note that you need to download the 32-bit version, not the 64-bit version (64-bit version has "64" in the filename), regardless of whether your OS is x64, because Winamp is a 32-bit program and therefore will only be able to use 32-bit splitters & filters.

Let it install to the default "C:\Program Files\ffdshow" folder
(or if Windows x64 then to "C:\Program Files (x86)\ffdshow")

Follow the onscreen guide/instructions (basically, just keep clicking Next)

On one of the ffdshow setup screens it asks you which video & audio formats you want ffdshow to handle.

For Video: Make sure H.263, H.264/AVC, Other MPEG-4, DivX, XviD, are all checkmarked, plus any others of your choice.

For Audio: Make sure AAC is checkmarked, plus any others of your choice.

When done, open Winamp.

Go to: Winamp -> Prefs (Ctrl+P) -> Plugins -> Input:

Nullsoft MPEG-4 Audio Decoder (in_mp4.dll) -> config:

Remove MP4 from the Extension List, so it just leaves M4A there.

Nullsoft DirectShow Decoder (in_dshow.dll) -> config:

Add MP4 & M4V to the Extension List, so it now looks something like:

And that is all :-)
