Stream All Mac System Audio Over AirPlay in OS X
You can now stream a Macs system audio directly over AirPlay without any third party apps or tweaks. The best part is that unlike AirPlay mirroring, the system audio stream should work on any Mac that can run Mountain Lion, not just 2011 model year and newer Macs.
Here’s how to stream all system audio from the Mac to a compatible AirPlay device:
- Hold the Option key and click the Sound icon in the menu bar
- Select the AirPlay compatible output device (Apple TV, AirPlay speakers, AirPort Express, etc)
Is that easy or what? Now launch Pandora, Spotify, iTunes, DJay, or anything else that has audio, and your Macs sound gets streamed out to the AirPlay receiver. If you’ve been trying to figure out a way to get wireless speakers hooked up to a Mac with little effort, this is it.
