Default WiFi2HiFi: Get Streaming Audio Goodness

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://lifehacker.com/#!5778702/wifi2hifi-streams-any-audio-from-your-pc-to-ios' target='_blank'>http://lifehacker.com/#!5778702/wif...-your-pc-to-ios</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Apple's AirPort Express has long been an awesome way to stream music from your PC across the house, but if you don't have one, iOS app WiFi2HiFi lets you stream any audio to your stereo using your iOS device."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1299619523.usr1.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Have an iOS device (iPhone, iPod Touch) and want to get music from your PC to it? Then WiFi2HiFi is worth a look: you buy the app for 99 cents, then after installing a separate program on your PC, you can connect the two and get your music anywhere in your home. I've personally wished for in-home "everywhere" audio in the past, but I've never been willing to shell out the dollars needed for the whole ecosystem of speakers required. This would provide a solution to that&nbsp;quandary&nbsp;- sort of - but ultimately it's just a "dumb pipe" because it doesn't allow you to control the music coming off your PC.</p>

Default Enjoy it for the Next 3 days

because with iOS4.3 it will be rendered unnecessary.

Now... A useful bit of software would be something that turns your Mac or PC to the AirPlay receiver. There is one for catching AirPlay video from iOS (AirPLayer, http://ericasadun.com/ftp/AirPlay/) but sadly nothing that will just receive Music (or any audio only stream) tossed from an iOS device. Thank you DRM!!! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remote_...utput_Protocol).

Remember kids, DRM and Intellectual Property Laws stifle innovation...

Default airfoil

airfoil by rogue ameoba does the same thing but also works with PCs and Macs. It will play to them all simultaneously. When used in conjunction with the remote app you can control playback to every room in your house with a PC Mac or iOS device.
