    So I set up my Airport Extreme with my speakers, and its great to have my music and videos play wirelessly... in iTunes! But I can't seem to figure out how to play sound through these speakers in other applications. It doesn't show up as an output source in my Sound preferences and other apps don't seem to let me choose my wireless speakers for sound. What do I need to do? Thanks!

    I think you meant Airport Express? The default settings will only output audio from iTunes. You would need a third-party app like Airfoil to do what you want.
