On the page of Playlist options in Winamp Preferences is an option for designating the extension Winamp will use for unknown files. It is set to mp3 by default. If the unknown file format is not compatible with the designated extension, Winamp will not be able to try to handle it.

Winamp uses a file's extension (if it has one) to select the input plug-in used to handle the file. Winamp currently does not read a file's header in order to select the appropriate input plug-in for the file. If the file's extension does not match the format the file is using or the implied input plug-in is not installed, then Winamp will not be able to try to handle the file.
