Playing ZIPPED Files...

This question may have been answered in the past, but I will ask anyway.

Is there anyway of getting Winamp to play a Zipped File (*.zip) without having to actually uncompress it seperatley first??

Why I hear you ask, well the answer is simple...

I run a karaoke and am sick and tired of carrying around hundreds of discs, so I have extracted them to MP3+G format.
While the MP3 file is a small enough file the graphics part is rather large.. But when compressed I get up 5% saving on the MP3 and over 75% on the graphics, hence why I want to zip the files..

So can anyone help me just add a zip file into the winamp playlist and have it play.....?

Thanx in advance for any help, anyone can give.

Unfortunatly, the graphics file is not a image.
It contains all the lyrics and when and where they should be displayed.

Nice thought tho.. if only it was that simple.
