Winamp Cloud might have been like what is asked for but WinAMP Cloud never existed.

though probably a dlna/upnp device setup would be able to do a lot of what's wanted, effectively turning the desktop client into a media server (as well as being able to play things). or you could go down the route of an on-demand like SHOUTcast derived setup (essentially providing a single file instead of a pre-defined stream so you can play what you want when you want), but it really depends if streaming is an acceptable option or if you must play the exact local copy irrespective of the device you're on.

though there's probably still merit in having Winamp be able to make use of cloud hosting services for media storage and playback (especially via shared devices like desktop + android) rather than having a dedicated custom cloud service as Winamp Cloud started out as being.
