I believe you need a mkv codec for winamp, and try changing the extension from mp4 to m4v. Regardless, imo, winamp rocks as a music player but flops as a video player

No you can't play videos on winamp. If you do so, your Software will Crash everytime.

Where is it possible to find those codecs? Google Play Market?

I believe you can play the audio from videos, but not the video itself.
