Edcast standalone only does live streaming, and IMHO the presence of the 
live streaming checkbox in the standalone UI is a bug.  Only the plugin 
versions have the option to turn it off.  This is because they can also 
accept input from the associated player, whereas the standalone version 
obviously has no player and hence no other input source.

As has been said here already, you should be able to change your soundcard 
input to accept outpu from other players or from the CD drive.

Tool for what, ultimately?  If you just want to play automation from 
Winamp or Foobar, using the plugin may well be a lot simpler.  But it 
really depends what your ultimate goal is.
