trick itunes into streaming?

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
ok, i was bored and just thinking about crap, and i thought this was interesting. would it work to copy the actual itnues program into iDisk, then play everything from that? if so, wouldnt that allow anyone under your idisk account (family, etc) to stream music? maybe i'm way off....

    A program exists in a state of storage (as a file) and in runtime (in memory). iTunes would still be running on your computer, it would just be stored in a different place.

    If you want to stream music to your family over the internet, they download a Rendezvous proxy program, or if you have the bandwidth (and the iDisk space), move your music library to your iDisk's public folder (which you can set a password on if you wish). Then they can download iTunes and set their music folder location to your iDisk.
