    JRiver Media Center is what I use. Run the software at home with the media server feature turned on.
    Run the same software at work as a client.

    You buy it once and install it on as many computers as you like.
    That's their licensing model.

    Shoutcast is more like a radio station.
    You'd set winamp up to play a playlist hours long and have shoutcast stream it.
    You'd then be able to play that stream at work.
    The downside to this method is that it would be just like listening to FM radio...you don't get to pick the current song. The order of the songs and what happens to be playing at the moment is controlled at the SERVER side.

    With Media Center, you get access to your full mp3 library. You decide what plays from the CLIENT side.

    If you can access the PC with Shoutcast,via the network/internet, you can also control it and what it plays.
