Has anyone try to set up a airport time capsule as a cloud router instead of a back up only router?
In what sense are you referring to "Cloud Router"? I know D-Link uses that term for their (proprietary?) means of allowing access back into your network from remote locations. AirPort routers including the Time Machine offer similar features using the "Back to My Mac" mechanism.
Such as storing movies, musics, photos, then can access it anywhere from all your devices such as mac, iphone, ipad, and ipod touch.
As soon as you config your router to allow file access from the internet, you can access all your files from anywhere.
You have to take into account, that iOS devices have no way of accessing any file servers by default. You need to get a special media player (eg GoodPlayer), that can connect to file sharing servers.
In all those cases you will basically do a remote file access, no streaming.
As of today's state of the things, you can not do AirPlay streaming across Internet. AirPlay only works on local LAN segment (ie home network or small office network with a single subnet).
