    Can you use the Airport Express for anything other than AirTunes (audio-wise) ?

    Is it's sole purpose, listening to tracks in your music library?
    Or can you also use it when watching movies in iTunes?
    And what about FrontRow ?

    How about listening to music on myspace, youtube, etc ...

    Thanks in advance

    Well, I suppose the intended sole purpose when it comes to audio for the Express is to listen to iTunes through Airtunes, but then there is Airfoil. With Airfoil you can send any audio through Airtunes.

    While Airfoil allows you to send any audio to the Express, it won't be synced to the screen (ie watching moview through FrontRow will be terrible). There is however a matching separate video player available which is supposed to keep in sync.

    If you just want to listen to the music on Myspace or Youtube and don't care about keeping the sound and display matched, it will work great.
