    Does anyone know if it is possible to play itunes videos and broadcast the sound into the speakers via airtunes?

    I play all of my music from my powerbook in to my home audio system, and I LOVE some of the versions of the music that are in the videos I have purchased (see: Original of the Species by U2)...

    The problem is that once a video song comes on, the music switches back to my laptop speakers making for a terrible end-user experience...

    This lack of functionality really lends speculation to the idea that Apple is developing a video capable Airport Express...

    I wonder if AirFoil would help... I don't know whether it'll work with iTunes videos, but it might be worth a try. :)

    With AirFoil, can you watch a Video, but send the audio to more than 1 express?

    Thanks

    When you used airfoil did you not find the picture and sound were out of sync? Thats what I found when I used it. If not then thats great news and they must have fixed that problem.

    ey Guys

    Before i buy a mac mini, i wanna make sure i can use VLC to play music videos, and stream to 3 or more express's with the audio and video staying in sync, can anyone confirm if airfoil and VLC will work well in this situation?

    Many Thanks
