Compressed Files (again) and Media Sorting

first of all: yes i know there are other topics about this

my wish: winamp to be able to play ".rar" files. not compressed ones, only those packed for "storage". this way it doesen't take time to decompress but all mp3. from some cd or artist or whatever are in one file.

question: lots of threads about this out there, lots of plugins. but will this become a oficial part of winamp someday? I thin it would be a way to kick iTunes out.

Second Wish: I came back home now with 54GB of music. pretty cool. problem is: my family also has something like 40GB. but scattered around 5 pcs and 2 laptops summing something like 70 GB or more.
I want to clean this mess. but only on my PC there are 11000+ songs! i don't want to do this "by hand"
iTunes sorts media automaticaly, but in a very poor way that "binds" you to the product (ever spent some time sorting music you got from a itunes user? wtf is "kiss me.m4a"?)
so, is there a WORKING plugin for winamp to sort media? something i can configure so it will sort media in some way I can configure? and will this ever be a feature of winamp or do I have to abandon my old friend and change to ugly iTunes?

thanks allot and sorry for digging up old issues but i'd like some clear answers and not lots of links to plugins that don't work (just describing my main problem, grat plugins out there!)

thanks again!!

1. It's hard to provide native support for all features. Someone needs one feature, another person doesn't use this feature.

That is one of the reasons, why we have plug-ins. Everybody can enhance the player with feature he needs.

You should try DrO's in_zip.

Works fine for me, I've archived my classic game music collection and use this great plug-in to open the archives (mostly .rar and .7z) in Winamp.

thanks!
do you also know about some plugin that renames, sorts and moves files on my HD when I change them in the ML?

Would be a GREAT help for me!

No, if I don't got you wrong, you mean a mass tagging feature. It's part of the wishlist, maybe a future version of Winamp will have it. I'm not aware about such a plug-in, cause I use MP3Tag to tag my files instead of Winamp's library.
