compressed zip input

Hi. Anyone knows about a plugin that allow to "play" a zip? (I mean, play the mp3 inside a .zip file) Lots of peoples are grouping the albums in a single zip to share the entire album, but to listen I have to decompress it and if I want to share it, I need to have both files (zipped and mp3).
I know winamp3 had this in the wishlit (i dunno if it's on the release), but i don't like winamp 3 'cause take ages to start...

Sorry if I sound silly but can't you unzip your mp3s, make sure they're not corrupt and then get rid of the original Zip file ?

zipped 'cause...

Because I use Edonkey to share mp3 and the albums are usually shared as a zip with all covers, lyrics, etc inside a single zip (check http://www.musicdonkey.org). So when I dowload a zip and I want to keep it shared, I have to decompress it to listen it and let the zip alone to be shared.

'bout the plugin, it's nice, but it decompress the files to listen...
I prefer something more transparent (like ZipMagic), but as for now, I'll use it. Thanks!!!
