Ifyou don't actually need to play music form Winamp but just need to 
stream a live event from the soundcard, you don't need Winamp at all. 
You can simply use Edcast stand-alone to do this.  If you do need to play 
music as well, you can use the Winamp plugin version.

plugin if you need to talk or stream soundcard audio.

Edcast is open source.

Edcast can archive your outgoing stream for you.
