App to stream music

    I'm looking to build a very simple app. I have around 500 MP3s that I want to stream live, as in like a live radio stream, not a playlist where users can select or skip songs.

    The songs will be on shuffle, and I'd prefer if I could host the MP3 files somewhere online, rather than stream them from my own PC.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    could you not rent a server, store the 500 mp3s on it, then make an m3u file and stream that through to your music app on your phone?

    Thanks for your reply/idea.

    M3u might be the way to go. I might try build an app with a media player pointed to the m3u, if that's possible.
