Remote streaming of media files

I have set up my live book and successfully enabled a remote access acount. I downloaded the wd2go app on my android phone and can successfully stream media files from it. 

However, I can not stream media files from the remote access using windows 7. I can play music but I have to wait for each song to download, which is REALLY anoying. I know I can stream on my home network but is there no way to stream media files from a remote location in Windows 7. After reading the manual, that seams to be what it is indicating. If this is the case it seams silly as I can stream remotely just fine from my Android phone.

I can play my MP3 files using windows media player, without having to download them. I guess it will depend on your internet connection speed.
