    ive got a pc with like 50 gigs of music on it

    the goal is to have that in the office of my apartment and be able to stream all 50 gigs of music to other rooms via my wifi connection, all the other rooms have small shelf-sized cd players.

    what i want to use is an ipod touch my gf gave me for x-mas but id be willing to buy other products if i needed to

    sooo in conclusion is there a good way yet to stream .mp3s from my pc to my ipod touch so that wherever i go in my apartment i am not limited by the touches 8gig hardrive but can rather access my entire music library?

    get an airport express and stream your itunes library on your computer over airtunes.

    if you're trying to use an ipod touch to somehow stream all that music on your computer, I seriously doubt that would work. and what would you do, walk around your apartment with your ipod touch? Much better to stream with airtunes and pipe it to speakers you have around the house

    If you can spend like a few bills on something new i'd recommend Sonos.

    this doesn't completely solve your problem, but I am using my iPod touch to control my living room connected to my pc using signal (and I am loving it):

    maybe this and airtunes? (haven't tried it)

    :rofl:

    all reya threads should be in the main forum but the broke ass can't even afford less than $1.50 a month


    also this could have been in the fucking gadget sub forum (which is free too btw)
