Is it possible (and how) to have all the system sound played on AirPlay? Or at least for some specific (random) application (e.g. Songbird)?

What you want is AirFoil by Rogue Amoeba. Plays any audio from your system via AirPlay.


If you have a newer Mac with Mountain Lion you can also use it's built in AirPlay functionality.

Go to System Preferences->Sound and select Apple TV from the Output tab. This will play all system sound from your Mac.


An easy way to do this in Mountain Lion is to hold down the option key and click on the speaker icon in the menu bar. You then get a list of possible outputs, and will be able to send all audio to your Apple TV or other AirPlay device by selecting it.
