You can use any DLNA capable App to stream from MediaMonkey: http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... ervers/4.0

What I have is a ipod touch that fits in a docking station for playing songs. Wondering if MM can stream to this by bluetooth as the docking station does not have any audio inputs for cable. My computer has bluetooth, if this can be done would be a easy solution.

Thanks

As far as I know it is not possible to transmit Bluetooth audio to an iPod.

I'm sure your laptop has WiFi. As does the iPod Touch (?).

MM supports playback to a DLNA DMR (digital media renderer) client. You can send DLNA via WiFi.

So you need a DLNA client app for the iPod Touch that allows the app to operate as a DMR (to play music streamed to it by MM).

Go play:

Hmmm... I'd forgotten how rubbish iThings are at handling DLNA; can't find an app that allows the iThing to become a remotely-controlled DMR. Lots that offer DMC features, but not DMR. Just about every Android DLNA app I've used makes the app's DMR available for remote control.

The nearest I found was this, but it's from 2008, and requires jail breaking the iThing:
