    alright just bought an airport express for my new imac g5. i can stream sound from mp3 files in the itunes to my stereo but here comes the problem: i cant stream the sound of video clips to my stereo, it switch directly to the internal sound system of the imac. PLZ HEEEEEELLLLLLP !!!!!
    is there something blocked? and i just should stream the sound trough a regular cable to get my requirements?
    i would like all the sounds from the imac to play through the sound system.

    That's normal. To play some other sounds through AirTunes, try AirFoil. :)

    Apple markets and sells the AE as a way to stream iTunes music to another room, wireless printing and network device. No where do they say you can stream sound from other applications. What's your beef? That it doesn't do something it is not advertised as doing?:rolleyes:
