airtunes for ipod touch
Would it not be great to just be able to stream you music from your ipod touch / iphone to airtport express over airtunes?
what would be the reason for apple not to build in such feature?
would it be difficult to develop, I guess not for the dev team. let's hope is available soon.
When i was looking in the iTouch files i found this "AirPortSettings.bundle" so mabey it is comming
To my knowledge when streaming itunes => airtunes audio, itunes converts the stream to ALAC as that is what airtunes plays. Not sure if the iphone/touch can do it, but if it could, it would be a monstrous battery hog for not only cpu usage but wifi as well. Keep in mind, the DSP on the iphone is not made to encode ALAC, but rather decode.
I was thinking the other way around, to use your iphone as remote speakers in itunes would be cooler (and more feasible). However, from my reading, the required keys have not been reverse engineered, so, there's no third party apps, on any platform that can receive airtunes streams, only send them.
