AirPlay works over UDP and it requires that both the sender and receiver device exist on the same TCP/IP-based network. That's generally not possible in your car because you aren't running an 802.11-based wireless network in that space.
For wireless audio streaming in your automobile you want to look for a head unit that supports the Advanced Audio ...
The traditional "Internet Radio" feature is not gone from iTunes 12.7.
The feature for offering free for all internet radio streams was not removed from the application but may be hidden and is now named competitively with another "Radio" feature within iTunes.
Check Restrictions for Traditional "Internet Radio"
It may be invisible to you because you may ...
Yes, using Airfoil for Mac (also available for Windows) and the companion app Airfoil Speakers Touch you can stream any audio from your Mac to your iOS device.
I haven't tried it much myself, and reviews are mixed, but you can try it for free before shelling out the money for it.
This can also be used to send audio from a MacBook to a bluetooth headset ...
The AirServer application may offer the functionality that you're looking for. According to this 2011 review, the app can:
AirPlay is what lets you throw content from an iPad or iPhone
wirelessly to speakers or your TV. To do this, you need to have an
AirPort Express next to your speakers, or an Apple TV hooked up to
your TV. Bluetooth speakers show ...
To answer the op's exact question, "No, ATV is not intelligent enough to stream directly from a NAS". Others have pointed out some options, like using ATV2+Plex, or PlexConnect (which is VERY difficult to setup).
Let me thrown my $0.02 in by saying that unless you're running your iMac over wi-fi, this will work fine. Even with my older 802.11g network, my ...
Here is a little solution that uses the open source programs Soundflower, VLC and SoX.
First of all, you need to install the necessary programs using Homebrew:
brew install sox
brew cask install soundflower vlc
Choose the Soundflower (2ch) device in the system settings for the sound output such that it can be forwarded to a VLC server which we will set up ...
I have found yet another unofficial solution! it worked for me and i hope the same to you. i believe the macbook utilizes bluetooth in the background for handoff and FaceTime. i believe it searches occasionally for data or cues that are sent from secondary devices or stays quietly paired with a device you may already have (causing gaps in bluetooth ...
I tried all the listed solutions and nothing worked for me on MAC Sierra.
sudo killall coreaudiod
worked for me but only for max 1 hour. Than I had to reenter which is quite annoying.
The bluetooth sound quality was dropping extremely especially while playing videos (high CPU and memory usage). It was unbearable.
What finally worked:
I still have the "Internet Radio" in iTunes 12.7 – I'm in the screenshot below using an US Apple ID, and I can confirm that I also have the "Internet Radio" with my Danish Apple ID – maybe you just need to re-add the menu item?
How about Airfoil from Rogue Amoeba. It also offers the facility to receive audio from iOS devices and play out through your Mac. See this page for more details.
Airfoil Speakers can now receive audio from several new sources, without even needing to use Airfoil. What does that mean for you?
First and foremost, Airfoil Speakers for Mac can now ...
To live stream your desktop, you will want to get two pieces of software:
Software to capture your desktop as a stream and redirect:
1) CamTwist - http://camtwiststudio.com/download/ - does desktop live capture and turns it into a video stream that is compatible for "webcam" input applications. I've used this to live stream my desktop to ustream.tv, Google ...
You can combine AirPlay in iTunes 11 and up with something like AirSever to accomplish this with good results and very little effort. (Note: For more options on how to turn your Mac in to an AirPlay receiver please see: Can I use a Mac Mini as an Airplay audio receiver?)
Install the AirPlay receiver software of your choice on the machine you want to stream ...
It may not suit you, but, if your NAS is capable of running Plex, you can add PlexConnect script to any Mac/Windows computer in your house, which will allow you to hijack the Trailers application in the AppleTV (2nd/3rd gen., no jailbreak required) and have it stream your movies/TV shows from Plex in your NAS box. Google Plex and PlexConnect to find more.
There are two options which will suit what you want
Any AirPlay video receiver will let you stream wirelessly. (You can stream the audio and video, or just the video and use headphones) AppleTV is one such receiver and by virtue of it being on the market the longest, it has the most users with experience as to how it works.
Buy a longer cable and link up ...
I am not sure, but does Airfoil have a Helper application running in the background? Maybe you have to quit that one as well instead of just restarting AirFoil?
Also, do you have the latest version? I have just checked and the Release Notes on the Rogue Amoeba website have a bugfix in the latest release 4.6.2 from a few weeks ago that seems to match your ...
The easiest way imho would be to buy an AppleTV2. It's cheap, and "it just works".
Edit: For completeness sake, I'll just clarify what you can expect from the AppleTV2. Since it is an AirPlay compatible reciever for both audio and video, you can stream music or videos being played on your iPad (or iPhone/iTunes for that matter) directly to your TV. On your ...
This guide worked for me http://tdotc.wordpress.com/2012/05/28/sound-matters/
Install Soundflower in your Mac.
# open network port 16002 to receive raw data for PulseAudio (in your receiver)
while true; do nc -l 16002 | pacat --latency-msec=1; done
# connect the audio input on OS X to a remote raw sound sink via esdrec and netcat (in your Mac)
Try using VLC to play the DVD instead of the OS X's DVD Player app.
You can also rip your DVD to a format the Apple TV can play directly using Handbrake, but obviously this isn't really an on-demand solution (it will probably yield better quality than VLC + AirPlay Mirroring though).
Also see this question for details on how you could set up direct ...
I've been using Airfoil to do this for years. Only one Mac needs to have the music: it is streamed across the network to the other. You need a reasonably well performing network for this to work well: sometimes my WiFi plays up and the audio can get a little out of sync as a result. For me, it works best when using their software on both Macs (Airfoil on ...
The Apple Developer documentation for AirPlay, specifically the HTTP Live Streaming section, has pretty detailed information about it. Depending on several factors, I summarize the following:
Resolution max. recommended high profile encoder settings, for a 16:9 aspect ratio over wifi:
Dimensions: 1920 x 1080
Total bitrate: 40000 kbps
Video bitrate: 39000 ...
Open the web inspector and look in the resource list for the active network connection (indicated by the spinning pinwheel next to the resource) as this is usually the stream file.
Clicking the resource will show the Full URL under the Location section of the resource inspector. This URL can be added in VLC.
Note that ...
VLC Preferences → Show All → Input / Codecs → Advanced (scroll down) → File caching (ms) and Network caching (ms). File caching is used when using the standard Open File functionality, even if the file is located on the network. Network caching is for the Open Network function in VLC.
There are two solutions I can visualize for this scenario:
Saving the file to a remote computer
Having a live stream broadcast so a remote computer can receive the audio
Saving the file
This is probably the easiest method. Allow the stream to finish recording then copy it to a predetermined location on the network. This script should fit the bill:
Stream from your iPhone or iPad or iPod Touch to your Mac
The Netflix app for iOS supports AirPlay, a proprietary protocol stack developed by Apple, which allows wireless streaming between devices of multimedia content. This means that you can stream Netflix movies and shows from your iOS devices to any AirPlay-enabled devices over local Wi-Fi. And because ...
Try IP Cam by Senstic available on the Mac App Store (no affiliation with the developer).
This app claims to work over a private network without needing active connection to the Internet. From the app description:
Start IP Cam on your mac.
Take a note on the HTTP access address shown by IP Cam.
For Wi-Fi remote viewing, enter ...
You can play media that originates on an iOS device using AirPlay to send it to the Apple TV. AirPlay is built in to iOS.
If you have a PC or Mac, you could turn on iTunes Match and send the entire library to the cloud. At that point, you could ditch the PC/Mac and let Apple TV play from the cloud. iTunes Match requires a yearly subscription fee.
