Icon pack that shows file extension in 'small icon' view and/or diff. color per ext.

Is there an icon pack for Winamp that shows the file extension in the icon at 'small icon' or 'detailed' view?

Also, is there an icon pack that has a different icon color per file extension at small - large views?

This is to help me differentiate between different audio files in a folder.

Hi,
Please check this: http://www.winamp.com/plugins/plugin-skins/113
Maybe you will find what you are looking for...
My Icon Packs just shows Winamp logo in small icon view, instead of extension.
Also, I dont think there are different colours for extensions (for sure not in mine).
Btw, You would like to see the colour for example Audio, Video groups or maybe each extension with different colour?

I'd downloaded a few icon packs already but am not able to find one that is like what I described. I am currently using Winamp Icon Pack (Llama).

I'm looking to use an icon pack like this (notice that at small/detailed view, the icons of different file extensions are of different colors and show the file extension): http://imgur.com/JPlPd

It would be nice if there are different colors for every group, but better if there are different colors for every extension (I only let Winamp handle audio files only. I use another software for video files.)

Yeah, colours makes sense... but, there are over 80 extensions for winamp, so it would be hard to define so many colours... that is why i wrote about groups.

As I wrote, I didn't see such Icon Pack, however, I can create such in future.

I modded a pack once to have playlists' small icons be visibly different.. not sure where I posted it on here though? Maybe Pawel's Icon pack thread?

I see. Colors can just be recycled though, if they become too many. This is what the icon pack of the software (KMPlayer) I put a screenshot of did (.TS and .TP share the same color, among other file extensions). IMHO, the number of colors should just be enough to allow variation between the most popular audio file and/or Winamp file formats: mp3, aac, flac, ogg, m3u, m3u8 (m3u and m3u8 could have the same color), etc. Which should be around two dozens.
