    Is there a way to watch a video file, dvd or otherwise, on my mac's screen while playing the audio through airport express?

    i was thinking: mplayer - airfoil.... but can't figure out the sound delay problem...

    Can't do that without a delay I'm afraid.

    The delay varies depending on how far your computer is from the Airport Express, so setting a fix to delay the video a fraction to catch up with the sound wouldn't be possible.

    but if there is a feature in a video playback program where you can have the video trail the sound by a variable bit, wouldn't that do the trick?

    i thought i read somewhere that mplayer could do it... but i can't figure it out easily...

    thanks for your reply,
