Playing .UMX files in WMP

Hey guys,
I would like to ask is it possible to play .umx audio files in WMP (yes, it is the UT GOTY soundtrack )
Please note that i am very much aware that you can use programs like MOD PLUG PLAYER to open them ( i currently use it) but i would like to ask is there anyway of plaing them with WMP

Thanks in advance

winamp will play them, i think to play them in wmp you will need a codec pack installed, most people on this forum would recommend sharks007 codec pack from here....

Here are Downloads links to current releases: x64Components addon _______ 32bit Win7codecs
Also know, it is recommended to UNINSTALL - upgrade installs are known to cause issues.

Using a current release, WMP will play the file
The format will still not be recognized but if you allow it to add the extension to the player, it will play.
I have not setup the .umx exension for WMP use; I''ll do that in the next release.
