Winamp will not play certan file types HELP PLZ!

First of all let me say thank you for reading and let me apologize i do not understand much of the tecnical stuffs, i know how to use a computer not how they work so bare with me.
I have an HP vista and the latest version of winamp i only have the shoutcast DSP plugin and thats it for extras, not long agio i had a virus issue and my comp was reformatted and my files placed back on. Sence that time "MPEG Video Format" & "AVI Video Format" files no longer play in winamp but they used to and they work in windows meida player just fine. Is there a plugin or something i need to make them work? Or does winamp no longer support these file types? Everyone i ask just says "well convert them to this or that" ummm dunno how i would need step by step instructions. So can anyone help me? TYVM for you're time.

Celena - if you right click in the upper left corner, then choose "Options", then "Preferences", you can scroll down to "File Types" and choose MPG, MPEG, and AVI. That will associate them with Winamp and you should be good to go.

Hi

We will need more information to be able to properly diagnose the problem:
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=161361#video

-A list of plugins
-A dxdiag log
-Info about the codecs in the AVI files
-What's your Windows OS?
-Is it Winamp 5.572? Pro or Free version?

At a guess, start by installing FFDShow
