Hello keer. Welcome to the Apple Discussions!
Can I stream audio to my airport express? but not only iTunes.
Yes. To stream audio, other than from an iTunes source, to an AirPort Express Base Station (AX) you will need a third-party product, like Rogue Amoeba's Airfoil.
where can I suggest to Apple make some about it?
You can submit suggestions to Apple at the following link: Apple Product Feedback

  • I can stream from ios to new airport express but not from windows 7 or powermac G5

    I have new airport express and older apple tv on my network.  Both are connected and found by all devices - Windows 7 laptop, Powermac G5 and all ios devices.  I can stream music via airplay to both airport express and apple tv from ios devices (one at a time of course).  I can stream from itunes to Apple TV but cannot connect to the airport express!  It shows up and I get the dredded error: An error occured while trying to connect...
    I tried some of the many ipv6 suggestions that I've seen here but nothing is working. 
    Anyone have the setup?  Is this an airport express setup issue?  Please help!!!

    OK, I'm tipping my hat to Apple's (new) online experts. Great job.
    They might be able to solve YOUR problem, too. Find them at:

  • Stream music/radio via airport express' but not using itunes

    I currently have 2x airport express in different rooms and I stream music etc from my itunes to them (via my airport extreme basestation). Is there any way I can stream net radio or music from other apps to it? E.g. I'd like to listen to the bbc radio player on my stereo, but it is only connected wirelessly to my airport express.
    Being able to do this would make my mac experience near perfect!

    Hello andypandy9999. Welcome to the Apple Discussions!
    Yes, check out Rogue Amoeba's AirFoil.

  • AppleTV2 can't stream audio to my airport express

    Dear Apple Support,
    I just bought a brand new AppleTV2 (2nd generation) today and wanted to get my Apple setup just perfect - but AppleTV2 second generation dissapointed REALLY! You should definitely stick with AppleTV 1st generation.
    AppleTV2 can't stream audio wirelessly from to for example you hifi-system. This is REALLY a downgrade!
    I really hope that Apple's amazing development team will fix this as soon as possible via a software update.
    The baseline of this comment is:
    AppleTV 1st Generation can stream wireless audio to Airport Express.
    AppleTV 2nd Generation can not stream wireless audio to Airport Express - which is a MAJOR DOWNGRADE!
    Best regards,

  • Can connect to Airport Express but not to the internet

    Please help
    My Airport Express shows the solid green light. I am also able to connect to it and use AirTunes on my HiFi.
    However I cant connect to the internet. If I plug in my laptop to the router directly the internet works fine. So it is not a router problem.
    Any idea?

    After following your instruction, I am not able to connect to the airport express anymore. I can still see the network but it is somehow unable to read the IP address.
    When I try to get to the Airport utility it shows the base station but do not let me get into the configuration and shows an error message -4.
    The only option I have then is to reset the AE

  • Can Ipod Touch play music to Airport express like Airtunes of itune ??

    I can't find an option for it on my iPod, but don't rule it out.
    Apple may be working something.

  • Can connect to my airport express but not able to get email or internet?

    Hi just got the airport express and my iphone connect to it but cant get any email og go on the internet?

    Please try a full, extended modem reset and power cycle of the network as follows:
    Push the reset button on the modem (if present)
    Power off the modem
    Pull the battery (if easily accessible)
    Power off all other network devices, order is not important
    Wait at least 30 minutes
    Make sure the Ethernet cable from the modem is connected to the WAN port (circle of dots icon) on the AirPort Extreme and re-install the modem battery if it was removed
    Power up the modem first and let it run for 4-5 minutes by itself
    Power up the AirPort Extreme the same way
    Power up each device one at a time about a minute apart
    Check for operation
    If problems continue, I would have the device checked out at the Apple store.

  • Ipad connects with Airport Express, but not wireless router

    I have a airport express that exends my network and is connected by an ethernet cable to the wireless router.  they are on opposite sides of the house from each other.  every other device i own has full bars wifi anywhere in the house.  but the ipad only seems to find the signal from the AE. 
    If i go in the bedroom with the wireless router, the signal drops to 1 bar.  if i unplug the AE along with all the other electronics for the TV/Receiver at night, the ipad loses the signal and cannot get a signal from the router, standing right next to it.  i have tried reset, hard reset, renew lease forgetting network, and all fails.  any ideas?
    I have a Verizon Ultraline series 3 model A90-9100EM15-10 and the firmware is up to date.

    You likely have your reason for extending your network in this manner, but it seems that the AE is not really extending your router's network, but creating its own separate network that then extends your internet connection. This can be confusing to devices if you are expecting that they will switch between the two of them automatically.
    The iPad can only support one connect at a time. It sounds like you want it to be able to jump from the AE connection to a router connection on a whim when signal strength drops. I am not sure that the iPad's radio is that sophisticated. At best when the iPad looses a signal it could ask if you want to join any other network that it detects, especially if it has connected to that network in the past.
    AFA the router, some routers don't like iOS devices and just won't connect. When you go to Settings/Wi-Fi does the iPad see the router's network? If the iPad sees the router network, try configuring a connection by hand.
    Tap Other... and write the name of the router's network. Tap Security and select the type of security the router's network employs. Return to the previous pane and enter the password. Tap Join. If you can make the conection the iPad should remember this network in the future. Turn on Ask to Join Networks and hopefully when the iPad looses the AE signal in the future it will then ask you if you want to join the router's network.

  • ITunes recognizes one Airport Express but not the other

    I have two Airport Express and have updated both with V6.3. Now when I try to connect iTunes to the stereos to which they are connected, one works fine, the other says "The remote speaker is not compatible with this version of iTunes. I'm running iTunes 6.05.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance.

    Answered myself. Both Airport Express were sharing the same IP address. Changed one over and now everything works fine.

  • I can see partially downloaded movies in Windows Explorer but not in iTunes, why?

    I recently updated an iPad on which I had purchased and downloaded some movies. After updating, I was trying to get the movies back on the iPad by downloading them to my PC and then transfering them over. Only one of 5 movies downloaded completely, but the others started. I can see them listed in the iTunes > iTunes Media > Downloads file, but they don't appear in iTunes to resume and when I check for available downloads, I get nothing.
    How can I get these movies down to either my PC or iPad?

    First thing to try is a reboot of your iPad. Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously ignoring the red slider until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the iPad restart. See if that fixes your problem.
    None of my cameras has a GPS function so I never see that data in the info of a photo in iPhoto for iOS. But I do see the map choice to set a location for the photo. Perhaps a reboot will fix this for you.

  • HT1595 I have just bought apple tv which allows me to play music through airport express but when  chose to watch a movie the audio comes from the tv and does not give option listen through other speakers served through airport express. Can you help me ?

    I have just bought apple tv which allows me to play music through airport express but when  chose to watch a movie the audio comes from the tv and does not give option listen through other speakers served through airport express. Can you help me ?

    No, you cannot seperate the audio and video stream.
    You can use optical audio to a sound system (I use sony sound bar) and play the audio via that.

  • Limit Audio Output from AirPort Express

    I have active loudspeakers (B&O) that I'd like to drive with the airport express station. As I can not adjust the volume of the loudspeakers, I'd like to know, whether there is a possibility to regulate the output of the audio signal within the express station, rather then iTunes. Why?
    a) I have connected my loudspeakers to express and it worked all too well, at 24:00h, my neighbors where really happy, as all 70 watts started.
    b) the volume control of iTunes is not good enough to really control the output (its nearly zero or full power).
    c) I want to be flexible with my macbook and not necessarily sitting at my desk.

    Hi TD,
    What I've done with my similar set up like yours is that I've added on a Grace Design m902 unit in between the Airport Express and the active speakers. The Grace unit also comes with an optional remote control which then allows me to adjust the levels without having to touch iTunes.
    You can have a look at the unit HERE..
    Otherwise, you can look at other cheaper pre-amp alternatives. The reason I liked the Grace Design unit is that it allows me to also send a USB out direct into the unit from my computer if needed. Good luck!!

  • Play DVD with audio sound via Airport Express speakers

    Is it possible to play my DVD with audio sound via my Airport Express speakers?
    I can play music with iTunes trough these speakers, it would be nice if I can hear my DVDs aswell.
    iMac intel core duo   Mac OS X (10.4.7)  

    Not using Front Row.
    The real issue here is that audio and video stream at different speeds and it is hard to maintain sync. You know how when you hit play within iTunes it takes a while for the song to start through the speakers? It's the same with the DVD. So you'd need to work an offset into the audio when playing a DVD and it's not an exact science.
    You can download VLC player and mess around with the offset, then you'll also need a program like Airfoil to be able to force audio through the airport express.
    Good luck!

  • Can i stream safari to my airport express?

    Can I stream safari to my airport express?
    3rd party software like airfoil is a posibility but I think its a bit odd that I, using a mac omputer and a mac airport extreme, need to buy software to connect these two. So is there an other way to fix this?

    Can I stream safari to my airport express?
    I assume that you mean: Can I stream web-based audio files to the AirPort Express Base Station? That is, audio files not originating from iTunes ... correct?
    If so, then (as far as your iMac is concerned) you already answered your own question with Rogue Amoeba's Airfoil. For iOS devices, you can use AirPlay with audio sources other than iTunes.
