    The above statement is seen to be contradictory. The situation is
    very critical and need an experience complainer to resolve it.

    I too used to use Simplify Music. Orb is pretty good but it's more manual-ish, just browse the folders and listen to music manually. Plus it's pretty expensive for what it does (it sucks for video streaming, Air Video beats everything hands down for that)

    I was looking around for alternatives but then I remembered I've heard lots of rumors about music streaming, that Apple was also going to allow users to stream their iTunes libraries to their iOS devices. Granted, these are just rumors, but I figured I would wait until the September keynote where they introduce the new iPods, which is also rumored to be when they announce the iTunes cloud movement.

    If I don't hear anything about this there, then I'll continue looking for alternatives. I would also wish Air Video came out with a music streaming app, since they do streaming media the best.

    stream to me is perfect. Also since you can sync your movies also.

    Zumo Cast.
    Haven't used it much but it works pretty good. I don't care to leave my MacBook Pro constantly on when I'm not at home. It will occasionally tell me my Mac is offline when it's still on. I guess it may be the desktop software that times out.

    Been using StreamToMe for a week or so, seems promising. Works rather well and pretty cheap.

    The biggest problem I have with ZumoCast is that the desktop client eats up way to much CPU (more than 85%) and it slows everything down way to much for me to keep using it.

    I also vouch for StreamToMe. Along with music, it will transcode and stream your movies in just about any format, something Simplify would not do. Also, the developer is quick to address issues and support emails, if you have problems.

    Another StreamToMe user, checking in. Not a huge fan of the interface, but it gets the job done.
