Share iTunes library with remote iOS device via VPN
Authored by: PatentBoy on Sep 07, '12 10:02:58AM

Plex works well for me, with the Plex Server on your home machine (doesn't require OS X Server - don't want to run my power hog Mac Pro 24/7), you can remotely connect with the Plex client, which runs on iOS devices, or Mac/Windows/Linux machines. The iOS client is $5, but I would encourage one to try with a laptop, both locally and remotely, to get a feel for the system.

Also, as someone else mentioned, I strongly encourage use of WiFi so you don't have surprising cell phone bills. I would say you need at least 500 kbps upstream Plex server internet access for acceptable content viewing, but this is personal preference to some extent. With iOS devices you can set the quality a little lower since the screens are smaller.
