Airport Express and airtunes with iDVD

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

 

Does anybody know why iTunes is the only software to be able to connect to the airtunes?

 

It surely must be possible to stream iDVD audio to it too? Any ideas?

 

This is a shame because I hate having wires around, don't own a TV or a DVD player so using the mac but with my new studio quality powered speakers would be great!

 

I if only I could get the source code I'm sure it would be quite easy just to call the required objects to get it to stream. :cry:

Check out Airfoil from Rogue Amoeba software, it should do the trick you seek.

Why does apple make it an iTunes exclusive?

OK think about why Apple would want to make it just for iTunes, two words: market share. Do you really think they'd let you use MusicMatch? How about Windows Media Player? They made sure that the only way you could do it is with their product, meaning that they get more users meaning that all the people who don't use iTunes will see that all the people who do can do a bunch of stuff that only iTunes can do, meaning (This is getting old :D ) they switch and Apple gets more market share. I'm dragging but I hope you get my point.
