    How to: Stream all of your media to your iPhone/iPod on the go

    I stumbled across Dot.iTunes, an application that turns your desktop computer into a server for your iPhone/iPod.

    Basically, it allows you to access your iTunes library that is stored on your home computer (Windows or Mac) and stream it across the internet to your iPod/iPhone.

    This is great, since it breaks the memory and storage limitation to your iPod or iPhone. Essentially, your iTunes application becomes a web server that is accessible from anywhere on the planet.

    I'm just testing this app out right now. I'll give a more complete report on it later. Anyone using it right now?

    Yeah, it works as advertised. When it is working, it sounds better to me than Pandora or streaming radio stations.

    The big gotcha is that if it loses connectivity, the music pauses and doesn't pick up again when you get connectivity. You have to hit play manually. This sucks when coverage is spotty.

    Also, the Dot.tunes server comes with a lot of plug-ins that you pay for as you go. You can activate them by purchasing the plug-in. That's fine but it gets a little pricey as you add plug-ins.

    Thumbs up for streaming, thumbs down for intermittent play in poor coverage areas.
