    That is actually a very interesting experiment. Looking forward to seeing your next clip of actually implementing it in a home. Perhaps I missed it, did the streaming numbers you presented at the end account for streaming the Dylan song or movies?

    If not movies, I am curious how it would work with 5 different movies playing at the same time.

    Good experiment though.

    I thought you were going to stream 5 movies (to each Apple TV) and at the same time stream 5 songs (to all the Airport Expresses).

    As long as you have the network bandwidth....iTunes can stream a s*** ton. Last year I had my library on the dorm network, and I activity monitor showed 1tb transferred out...in one week.

    Network Traffic Info

    The data you see there at the end of the video is actually during simulations HD Podcast Streaming. Let me know if you guys want to know anything else.
