I have a MacBook Pro with 10.6.5 and have recently purchased a NetGear ReadyNAS NV+.

I am in the process of transferring my iTunes library from an external harddisk to the NAS.

I have managed to point iTunes to the music folder on the NAS and stream music to my MacBook Pro. However, I noticed that I was unable to get the music to play in iMovie.

Does anyone know if this is possible? Is anybody else using a NAS to store their iTunes library and put some music into iMovie projects?

You may need to have the music on your MBP rather than on the NAS for it to be usable on iMovie, though not too sure as I don't use NAS myself.

Well, I have been able to add music from an external hdd connected with USB to Airport Express. I would assume that from a NAS it would be possible as well.

I hope so since I would hate to have to move music files around when making videos.
