[maemo-users] how to access media content from home network to maemo device?

hi all,

sorry if this has been asked before. I'm a happy new owner of a n810  
and wondering how I could access my music/video collection on my home  
network from anywhere.

I have all my audio/video content on a (Iinux based) home system,  
connect to the net via DSL, and I'm wondering if there's any software  
that would make it possible for my n810 to access this content and  
either copy or stream audio/video files so I can access from anywhere  
using wifi or bluetooth/cellphone.

I imagine this would require an application on my home server to  
index and stream the content, as well as a maemo client app to browse  
and access the content. Or maybe there's software that is not maemo  
specific but just allows access through a mobile device friendly web  

Is anyone using maemo to access a home media library and if so, how?  
Are there any projects in developments that will do this, or are they  
perhaps planned features for existing applications (UKMP, Canola)?
