If you want to be a digital DJ over the net, I don't have help for you.  
If you just want access to your music library externally, might I 
suggest for a nice open source piece of joy?  It 
supports just about every audio format I've thrown at it. You can even 
get video streaming over it, though that's not it's forte and isn't 
great, but it works.  The settings configuration is versatile in its 
control of users and transcoding options so you can do it easy or you 
can get nitty gritty with it.  It is free unless you want to do some 
feature like stream to the Android/iOS/WinPhone apps or do some extra 
web service-ish things.
