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.
