Airfoil Streams Any Audio Over AirPlay

Airfoil Streams Any Audio Over AirPlay

Windows/Mac: AirPlay is an awesome way to stream music to your main stereo, but it only really works with iTunes. Airfoil streams any audio to your AirPlay devices, and it’s on sale right now.

If you’re listening to music through Pandora, Spotify, Winamp or other AirPlay-incompatible apps, Airfoil will let you stream it anyway. It’s one of the best ways to make your entire home AirPlay-compatible, but it’s usually a tad pricey at $US25.

In honour of their tenth anniversary, Airfoil developer Rogue Amoeba has a $10 discount on its entire library of apps, which means Airfoil becomes a much more enticing $US15. The sale lasts until the end of this weekend. Hit the link below to read more.

  • Sony micro HiFi lets you stream directly from iphone to stereo using airplay without an app and allows you to change music, adjust volume etc using phone, and if a call comes in the music is muted.

  • Correct me if I’m wrong, but in Mountain Lion I can choose Output Device by Option + clicking on the menubar speaker icon and my Airport Express always sits there as an available option.

  • A good free Linux alternative is stream2ip. Not as simple as airfoil and won’t let you stream to multiple devices at once but it seams to do the trick. The latest pulse audio is supposed to do this natively but I had endless problems with it.
