External Hard Drive/iOS apps to stream to ATV3

Firstly, apologies in advance if this isn't the most coherent thread. I've got a few questions floating around and I'm not too sure how best to word them, so I thought I'd turn to the good folks on here for answers!

Like most people I've got a fairly large movie collection that I can't really keep on my internal hard drive. So far I've established that it's not possible to stream from an external drive to ATV3, however, what I'm wondering is if there are any apps (preferably iPad but not essential) that can stream/use Airplay to act as a middle man between an external hard drive and ATV? I've been looking at the WD My Book Live, but are there any other recommendations that might work better?

If this isn't possible (or as a side question), would I still be able to use a networked hard drive to hold the movie files that iTunes reads from? I have "Keep iTunes Media folder organised" and "Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library" checked in preferences so I'm assuming this would have to be disabled?

Many thanks for any help!
