I hope you do know that even if it did support this, it would need to download the entire ZIP file to play one of the files within it. And it would probably need to do this every time it plays something from it. Or I suppose it could cache the entire ZIP file somewhere in its local storage for reuse. But it would still need to download the whole thing at least once first.

Archives are not magically streamable, especially not compressed archives.
