    Hi,
    I've just got myself an Airport Express and it's working fine. I saw once a utility which allows to stream all the OSX audio to the Airport Express and not only from iTunes but I can't find it anymore.

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks,
    Tex

    Airfoil will do it. It works well except that there is a couple of seconds lag. So it is great for e.g. internet radio but sucks for visual content like youtube.

    Yep this delay sucks a bit but I guess that there is nothing to do against.

    Nevertheless I found a workaround for VLC while watching movies: VLC allows to desynchronize the video with the audio so all I had to do was to play the audio 2000 ms earlier. It can be in the Audio preferences ;)

    cheers,

    You can also use Airfoils built in video player. Haven't used it, but I suppose that it's using QuickTime so it might not be an alternative to VLC (depending on your needs).
