    Default Streaming Music Collection to Iphone

    I wan to play all my music thats sitting on my PC through my iPhone over either wifi or cellular data.
    Since its a large collection of music, I dont have space to dump it on the phone.

    Is there a App or solution where you just install an App on iphone and it will link up to your Music collection either from cloud or from your Home PC
    and stream it ? I want to be able to stream from multiple iOS devices if possible.

    Cheers

    Plex is what you want.
    Works great but isn't free.

    Given you're on iPhone - don't you have itunes installed? You should be able to use home sharing to access the music off your iTunes library.

    And yes plex, though I think the iOS app still costs if the PC version doesn't.

    Make your music folder visible to your wifi network.

    If you buy an iTunes match subscription, you can do what you're after.
