Edna (http://edna.sourceforge.net/)  is what you want.  Streams over
http.  Works with all popular players.  I use it to stream my 60GB+
mp3 collection.  Excellent directory based on-the-fly generated track
listing.  Keeps statistics and can (should) be password protected.  No
need to install anything other than edna and python (which you
probably already have).  Development on it is slow, but, it Just Works
