    Is it possible to stream video from the iTunes library to the iPod touch, maybe using apple tv?

    I have the app Apple Remote on the iPod touch to control Apple TV. While the movie plays on the TV, it shows a still picture of the movie on the iPod. I thought it would be great, if there was the option to also play the movie. That gave me the idea, that maybe another app could play content from the iTunes library, without having to load the movie on the iPod first. This would make the iPod or iPad a mobile TV in my house. :)

    It's already possible: Understanding Home Sharing.

    Thank you Adrian. I needed to upgrade my iPod's software, and now it works. It will play a movie or other content from the library, when it is in the playlist.
