Thanks, I'll check out edcast. I don't need to play music, just stream
the event. From what I understand from my laptop there will be an
ethernet cable going out of it, with an RCA jack on the other end,
that goes in to either a mixer or soundboard provided by the hotel in
question maybe also where the speakers go, I've got a separate
microphone going in to the laptop.

I'll check out edcast and write if I have any more questions, also
that winamp plugin returned a 404 error.
