Simulate Airport Express network audio
Authored by: jdan on Feb 23, '11 01:54:41PM

I think the easiest way to do this is to use Soundflower in combination with RaopX. Instructions can be found on the website of RaopX - see at the end.
I have made two apps with AppleScript-Editor to start and stop the RaopX stream. One click on the start app and seconds later you can listen to your favourite music. The start app changes the system preferences, starts the terminal, types RaopX and starts the stream and it opens grooveshark.com in Safari. One click on the other app to stop the stream, close the terminal and reset the system preferences. The apps work flawlessly on my laptop but are of course written for my Dutch Mac Os. It should not be too much of a problem to make the necessary changes in the scripts, though. You then save the scripts as programs (Save as ). Put them in the program folder, drag the icons onto the dock.
The two scripts can be found here: http://users.fulladsl.be/spb12567/GeluidRaopX.scpt and http://users.fulladsl.be/spb12567/GeluidLaptop.scpt

Using raopx is only useful if you have an airport express to stream to, this is about streaming from a mac to a generic networked computer

Of course the title suggests the opposite... which got me falsely excited when I read it since I've been looking for ways to stream to an Airport Express outside of iTunes.
