One way to play iTunes music over the internet

also how good does your solution work if the itunes library is huge so that the library file is over 100 MB ? Then your solution will not work well.

the libray I use has 70GB+ and the only drawback is that when I initially click on the shared library icon (on my local computer that has the VPN client), it has to fetch the library information which takes about 30-60 seconds. But since I do that only once a day, I can well live with it.

my libray file has 26 MB.

Why do you assume the built-in sharing will be less efficient than copying the whole library file around?
I don't really know how the daap protocol works, but what I observe is that the transferred data with the initial connect is definitely less than the filesize of the library file.
