So I'd like to play my music, from another computer. Is there an app to let me access my itunes library or a music folder of choice from another browser, or anything to acomplish this?

Google Play Music does exactly what you just described. It will mirror your iTunes library online, letting you access it from anywhere. You can even install the app and stream your music from an iPhone/iPod Touch (unfortunately, they don't offer an iPad version yet).

To stream Google' music library, yes, you need to pay for a subscription. To upload and stream your own music (up to 20,000 songs I believe), you don't.

I just remembered that GPM is only available in some countries. You'll have to check to see if it's available where you are.

Way simpler option: turn on sharing in iTunes, then open iTunes on any other computer in your household that's on the same network and oh look, there's your shared library.
