It seems that every one of these streaming applications has to install a "server" on to the PC in order to send the stream to the portable device. Wouldn't it be nice if there was some kind of "standard" software that acted as a media streaming server.

Why would you want to stream your music when you can just put it on your mobile or a mp3 player? I don't understand the desire to stream music.

To eliminate the burdensome chore of copying the music to the portable device, and so you have access to your entire collection.

I guess my 64 GB phone is larger than most people have? Or they have a lot of music.

64GB is a pretty big phone but, even if people with 64GB phones have less than that amount of music, they likely have other things, like a bunch of photos and some videos too, that they want to carry with them. I might stream music from my server, but my bandwidth caps make that impracticle.
