Added the Music folder to the Air Video Server list so that I could watch some music videos stored in that folder. Later, while navigating through my music collection to that video folder via the Air Video app on my iPhone, I wondered if Air Video couldn't also stream regular music files. Nope. Doesn't list them, at any rate. Tried mp3 and AAC, but the files weren't showing up.

That certainly would be a nice capability to have, though. Music AND video streamed via Air Video. Would let me take Simplify off my phone and computer.

Would music streaming be hard to add to the app? Does Apple restrict this in some way?

Air Video focuses on streaming videos. There are dedicated tools in AppStore for streaming music. It is possible that in future we'll extend Air Video to stream music but we have features with higher priority that we need to address first.

Does anyone have any recommendations for an App to stream music (audio); i.e. - my iTunes music? I have a very large collection of songs and my iPod Touch cannot physically store all the music. I am aware of a few Apps but they require a user to sign up for an account or are only available for a MAC. I have a Windows PC.

I use SimplifyMedia -- on a PC. It won't stream DRM'd music (e.g. protected acc files from the iTunes store) but on the plus side, if you can get all your friends to install it too, you can stream their music libraries as well. LOVE THIS APP.
