Are you sure?

I don't mean to belittle your efforts here, but this concept doesn't make too much sense to me.

Everyone, on every OS, has access to a MP3 capable-program. Why add platform/program-specific codecs when a standard codec is already doing the job?

Plus the players you mentioned, iTunes, Windows Media Player, Real, all play MP3 in the first why not just use it?

The reason is most persons are very set in there ways and if they don't like winamp they don't want to use shoutcast etc.

I don't want to do this for my own pleasure its just to try and serve to everyone listeners individual desires as far as a stream formatting. I don't want my listeners to have to customize file extensions to open up a certain format etc.
