    Cool Speaker sharing question.

    Ok. I have 2 Macs: A Mac mini and a Macbook. I have an Altec Lansing 5.1 surround sound system connected to my Mac mini via USB. I want to use them to play Music from my Macbook.

    Is there a way to enable Speaker sharing? Or an app that would help ?

    From Apple's "arsenal" there's a AirPort Express; If you want to control music over your network, there's "iHam on iRye" and "Airfoil" (not sure how that works though.)

    Thanks. But, Airfoil is a paid software and iHam's site is parked.


    Any freeware? Or a way do it it with OS X (without apps) ?

    Sorry... still not sure what exactly what do you want, but does this fit your criteria? (apart from the "not leopard compatible yet")

    netTunes

    I remember seeing something similar, where you can stream music to speakers connected to other PCs and Macs but I cant seem to dig it back up again... (What I usually do at home is to use Remote Desktop to access my iMac then stream music from the interface there. But it's not so frequent where I can have my speakers banging away without incurring my neighbors wrath.)

    Thanks. NetTunes is a way to do it. Although its not fully compatible with Leopard, but it should do the basic work.

    I found another great walk-through on this:
    Playing Live Audio on Another Mac | Mac Geekery

    Its really interesting... You can setup a audio-sender and receiver on both Macs and do the streaming.
    I will try it out, and if it dosen't work, I'll get netTunes.
