Codec support?

What codecs and file formats does Winamp for Android support? Is it limited to what Android (StageFright) supports, or does it include its own codec plugins/libs?

I think its limited to what Android supports.
Doesn't support FLAC, that i know.

To me, Winamp for Android seem to focus on the syncing function and not on formats playable.

As far as I can tell, it adds no codecs so you are at the whim of the hardware manufacturer to what codecs are supported, and this often comes down to the flavor of multimedia chip that was put in the device and the codecs that they were willing to pay for to put in that chip.

Your mileage may vary!
