I tried searching around the forums for an answer to my question but was unsuccessful. I'm sure that someone has asked this at one point and I'm sorry for not having to ask again...
Anyways, I'm aware that APX can play music from iTunes thorugh my speakers but was wondering if there is a way to play the audio from a video file (from quicktime or vlc) through my speakers as well. I'm at university so all of my stuff is confined to one room and I have everything thing running through my receiver (including my computer) so it would be great if there was some sort of work around within the APX that would let me play all sounds out of my computer through my stereo... hopefully someone can help.

It'll cost you US$20, it won't work with everything (despite claiming otherwise) and it's called AirFoil (http://www.rogueamoeba.com/airfoil/). :)

Have you used it with VLC or Quicktime?
