    Hi, I am new in the forum and hope, someone can help me:

    I am looking for a way to listen to BBC via Airtunes. The problem is, that bbc only streams for realplayer and realplayer can not connect to Airtunes/ itunes.
    Is there any way around it?
    Other radiostations send a xxx.smil file, which opens the stream in itunes. Once it is in itunes, i can connect to airtunes.
    What kind of file is that? Since one can record a realstream, is it possible to send it to itunes?

    Any help is wellcome, ...


    PS. I am using an g4 pb pro 2.2GHz duo with 10.5.4

    AirFoil may be the answer you are looking for.

    It is a pay-for application, but their is a trail to check it all works.

    Hope that helps.

    Other users may have other ideas, I just typed in Google "Stream any source AirTunes" and that is what came back.

    Thank you for suggesting Airfoil

    I just bought it after trying the trial and reading your suggestion. Airfoil is absolutely worth the money. Pandora works fantastic on it, also it even allows movies to be heard in real time when watching it on your computer. Youtube also works just fine also.

    If you have an airport express this product expands the sources you can listen to 10 fold!

    Well worth the money. Thanks, I've been looking for
    something like this since I found pandora.

    airfoil solves a few problems for me

    Wow, that rocks!
    Cool that it works with other applications, too.
    Even the DVD-player makes sense. I am pretty shure, that we find it in the next osX version.
    Heii, elppa, thanks for the quick help!
