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!

  • Playing with no sound via Airport Express

    Several posts over the past year have been archived with no answer to this question:
    Why does iTunes 7.0.2 stop playings songs when both the computer and an Airtunes Remote (in my case connected via a base station) are selected for output?
    Stops between songs
    Plays a random number of songs between 1 and maybe 30
    The next song is playing according to song progress bar
    Pause and play restarts
    Other sound (Quicktime movie or Safari sourced) plays
    Audio MIDI Setup Line Out set to 44100 Hz (often changed by MPlayer which is not the self-billed greatest)
    Computer is not trying to go to sleep
    Aiport Admin Utility Wireless Options Multicast set to 2 (experimenting with 1) and Interference Robustness enabled (experimenting without)
    Boot ROM MP11.005C.B04
    Best guess: downstream of iTunes the audio output hardware negotiates with the network but when it gets a no-go flag clamps the stream from iTunes keeping it from even playing through the line out port. Possibly a firmware bug.

  • Can I play tracks from my iPod via Airport Express on only from my laptop?

    I can play tracks from my laptop thorugh my Bose Lifestyle  Airport Express.  Is there a way to play tracks from my iPod Touch through my Bose system via Airport Express?   My Airport Express is set up as a client to my Sky Broadband wireless router.

    I set up my laptop to my Bose Lifestyle System via Airport Express. It may be different for MAC but I just downloaded the Airport Express software and followed the on-screen set-up procedure, which includes entering your WI-FI key.  I do not have an iPad.  You need to select Airport Express in iTunes as your sound media. This is easily switched by an icon in the bottom right corner of the screen.  You will need to switch this back if you want to revert to using the laptop speakers.

  • Share printer with Windows 7 via Airport Express?

    I would like to share a printer with a Windows 7 Laptop via airport express. The Windows 7 Pc does not detect the printer whereas printing from the Macbook Pro works fine. Any ideas?

    Hi,  I was searching for the same (my colleague has a windows PC; everyone else here has mac). I have not tested this, since I am working on mac, but it seems like you need to install "Bonjour" for windows.

  • AirPort Express - watch video in itunes with SOUND via AirPort Express?

    Ok I read it is only possible via Airfoil...
    Sorry to bother you guys - no idea how to delee this...
    Hello everyone!
    I was overly excited to receive the airport express 802.11n Wi-Fi
    and everything works wonderfully. But some trouble arose non the less:
    The reason for the wireless AirPort was to allow projecting Videos via a Beamer on the wall
    and have fantastic sound, even though the soundsystems are standing elsewhere.
    But when opening itunes (it works with normal music just fine) and starting a purchased video there,
    there is no way I can choose the external soundsystem to be used to generate the sound.
    This drives me nuts! It would be really silly to not be able to use a soundtransmitter by apple
    when watching a video by apple's itunes, wouldn't it? That makes no sense.
    Please tell me there is a way to make it work....
    Thank you for your time and help!

    Apple does offer an option that does both. It's called the Apple TV.

  • When playing iTunes from 2006 MacBook via Airport Express remote stereo speakers, the music keeps dropping in and out

    I've tried hours and a trip to the Apple Store to resolve this problem, and no luck so far.
    We have two Airport Expresses -- one is an older "g" version (from 2006), one is a newer "n" version (a couple of years old).
    We have one older MacBook (from June 2006) (so it can only use "g" wireless and also cannot be upgraded to OS X 10.7 "Lion").
    We have one MacBook Air and an iMac (both less than a year old), an iPad (about 2 months old), and a recently acquired AppleTV (in the past few weeks).
    We also have two iPhones that do use our local wireless network on occassion.
    We have stereo speakers that are currently connected into one of the Airport Expresses.
    For years (until the past few weeks) I played music from iTunes on my first generation MacBook to the speakers with no problems (using the older "g" Airport Express).  Recently, however, when playing music remotely over the speakers we have gotten fairly regular (though at random intervals) drops of the music in and out (drops are for a second or two each).  So far, here's what we've tried to do:
    (1)     Went to the Apple Store, where they thought the problem might be compatability between the g and n equipment in our house.  They suggested that we get an Airport Extreme and use that as the base so that 2.5 GHz and 5 GHz networks could each be set up, allowing the two systems to play nicely.  Spent a couple of hours setting everything up.  No dice.
    (2)     The skipping happens even when (a) I turn off the Apple TV; and/or (b) turn off the older Airport Express and just use the Extreme and the "n" Express (with the "n" Express as the connection to the stereo).
    (3)      When I have the wireless network drop-down menu selected on my MacBook, the skipping occurs immediately after the computer is "looking for networks" (as shown at the top of the menu).  The computer does this at random intervals on a regular basis.  The skipping, however, will occur even if the menu is not selected.
    (4)     Here's the weirdest part.  The skipping has even occured when playing iTunes from our newish iMac, with the older MacBook shut down, with the older Airport Express shut down.  In this case, the skipping only appears to occur when we have the wireless network drop-down menu selected and again, it occurs when the computer is "looking for networks" which occurs at random intervals.  In this situation, the skipping only seems to occur when the menu is selected.
    At this point, if I can't find another solution, I'm going to return the Airport Extreme, and just give up playing music over our stereo speakers from the MacBook (and instead transfer music to the iMac and play from it).  But I thought I'd try a last-ditch effort to ask for help to see if anyone could figure out what might be causing the problem.  I would chalk it up to the problems of using my old "g" network MacBook on a newer "n" system (though I'm not about to spend $1K+ to upgrade my laptop just for this), but for (4) above, which seems to indicate something else is going on.
    Any help would be most appreciated!

    Unfortunately, your description of the problem and the placement of both your main and AirPort Express routers does lend itself to believe the problem is most likely Wi-Fi interference. If it isn't the microwave or portable phones, it could be obstacles like walls between the routers that may be preventing the stream from consistently reaching the Express.
    In your configuration, the stream will first travel to the main router, and then, from the main router to the AirPort Express. If, for example, you started the stream in the same room as the Express, that stream would have to travel across several rooms at least twice.

  • Printing with Epson 3800 via Airport Express

    I'm trying to get my Epson 3800 printer working over a Airport Express connection (3800 -> USB on Airport Express). The printer is showing up fine, however when I get to the print dialog I don't have all the advanced controls as I do when printing directly connected to the computer (printer settings and advanced media control).
    What do I need to do to get those working?
    OSX 10.6.3 with the current 3800 driver (6.11) and firmware (o02179_q).

    Hello Jeff,
    There could be one of two things causing this.
    1. The print dialog is not expanded. When you select to print, if you only see the Printer name and the Presets menu, then you need to click the triangle next to the printer name. This will expand the print dialog view and show you all the menu options.
    2. If the print dialog is expanded but the menu options are different, then you may have created the print queue for the Airport connection using the Gutenprint driver. If you open Print & Fax and select the 3800 queue for the Airport connection, in the right hand pane you can see what driver is being used in the Kind section. If this shows Epson 3800 - Gutenprint v5.x.x, then you have created this print queue using the Gutenprint driver rather than the Epson driver. The Gutenprint driver usually provides most of the functions you would require, they are generally just located under different menus. So you can choose to keep using the Gutenprint driver or delete this queue and create it again, ensuring you select the correct Epson driver.

  • Apple tv audio via airport express?

    I want to play apple tv output sound from airport express attached speaker, because my led monitor don't have any speaker
    What should I do

    Sorry, but what you are trying to do would not be possible. Instead, you would need to connect the Apple TV audio output directly to an audio receiver that supports the appropriate format based on which version Apple TV that you have.

  • Wireless Speakers via Airport Express

    I have two sets of powered speakers which I play my music from iTunes via Airport Express units. My issue is after months of excellent sound and no problems, it appears I am now losing connection to the speakers which means the music stops and starts, VERY frustrating....! The internet connection via the Airport Express units is not a problem, just the music.
    Has anyone had similar problems and is there an answer...??????

  • Apple TV2 airplay audio (via Airport Express) works well with music, but won't work with any video.

    I have an ATV2 and Airport Express connected to speakers all connected to the same network. It all works with music, but won't work with any video audio. In my ATV's settings I've selected my AirPort Express speakers. It works for music, why not everything else? Is there a fix or work around?

    Netflix is first on that list...What I mean is, if there is a feature that allows for a wireless audio connection to the Apple TV, why wouldn't the developer allow it. To keep me from enjoying a more convient connection? I can have the same listening experience on a wired connection...

    Hey everyone in Apple world!
    I figured out how to fix the flashing yellow screen problem that I've been having on my MBP!  Yessssss!!!
    I found this super handy website with the golden answer: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1379
    I followed the instructions on this page and here's what I did:
    Resetting NVRAM / PRAM
    Shut down your Mac.
    Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command (⌘), Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
    Turn on the computer.
    Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys before the gray screen appears.
    Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
    Release the keys.
    I went through the 6 steps above twice, just to make sure I got rid of whatever stuff was holding up my bootup process.  Since I did that, my MBP boots up just like normal.  No flashing yellow screen anymore!!   
    (Note that I arrived at this solution when I first saw this page: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2570?viewlocale=en_US)
    Let me know if this works for you!

  • Trying to get my Viera TX-P42S30B hooked up to me home network via Airport express with no luck.

    Trying to get my Viera TX-P42S30B hooked up to my home network via Airport express with no luck.
    Have tried both wired (network cable) and wireless to no avail, can't find much info online, any help appreciated !
    Airport utility 5.5.3
    Airport Extreme 802.11n
    Airport Express 802.11g

    The problem is that the AirPort Express (AX) is creating a subnet.
    To prevent that, configure the AX to act as a bridge (so that it is NOT sharing a single IP address).
