For on-demand streaming, I just use Apache and a mod_python script to
generate fancy index pages and playlists for whole directories. The
script also generates playlists for individual files, so that my
browser doesn't need a funny association for media files and can still
be used to download random media files to disk. One hitch is that
pausing a song will result in Apache timing out the transfer, but I
don't pause songs much anyway.
