Notice

Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

is ios app archive capable of playing zip files full of mp3s from url in playlis

Just wondering if the ios app foobar2000 is capable of playing zip files full of mp3s from url as a playlist

sorry if this is answered elsewhere..

If not, what's the work around?

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.
