MythMusic is a frontend-only plugin. There's no backend component of
it, so it must have "local" access to the music files. The files may be
on a network share (NFS or Samba).
The streaming idea you want is currently in the works in the form of mfd
and mfe, but they're not completely here, yet. If you're adventurous,
you can check them out.
