Thought I'd share some what I have done with everyone.
I really wanted the benefits of iTunes Match but didnít want to pay for the service, there are music apps as well that allow you import music into your iPod like mewseek but found the quality and selection has been becoming worse and you are only able to download single songs I decided to do the following.
I installed an app called Tonido from the app store (free) and installed the software on my HTPC ( Tonido Personal Cloud )
with the app on your iPhone you are now need to set it up to connect to your new home server and you are able to browse all your music files and download them to your iDevice.
you will now need access to your iDevices file directory you can use iFile for this now navigate to your applications folder /var/mobile/applications/ *tonido*
(you need the file name created by the app store it will look something like this 8CF42GH3-54DE-4E9A-8D54-3652DF145SHG ) take a note of this long name
now navigate to /var/mobile/Media and rename the folder called My Music to My Music 2
next create a symbolic Link
name it My Music and make the Link Target /var/mobile/applications/8CF42GH3-54DE-4E9A-8D54-3652DF145SHG/Documents/Music now copy any files you had in the original My Music Folder to the new one
Now you make sure you have pwntunes installed, once you have finished downloading the stuff you would like from your tonido server
go to the settings app>pwntunes and turn the Needs Sync option to on
now go to your music app and it will start the import of all the songs you just downloaded
*** One thing to point out if the tonido app ever needs to do an update you will need to fix the My Music link.

Will this allow me to stream music or will it copy everything to my iPhone?
I have 200GB of music and don't want to copy it!
