Streaming desktop audio / itunes music on OSX

I was looking for a solution to get my osx desktop audio or really just whatever was playing via itunes to be played via Serviio / the sound system attached to my 2011 Sony TV.

I spent a few days googling and tried out a few things - thought I'd write up what ended up working best for me to save anyone else in the same situation a bit of time...

The best solution for me was using an app called Nicecast and the Serviio Playlist plugin.

Nicecast can be found here: http://www.rogueamoeba.com/nicecast/ - its non free but there is a demo version you can try out.

Its very easy to setup Nicecast to stream itunes so won't go into that; basically you end up with a url eg which via the Playlist plugin needs adding as http://-SW-uhttp:// ( you might be able to add more flags to get trackname etc - not tried that yet )

Thats basically it! it seems to work fine, bit of a delay in the audio arriving at the TV but thats to be expected.

Another thing to note might be I'm running Serviio on a linux box - so that's configured to streams from my Nicecast / Mac then back over the LAN onto the TV.

DRM Audio Converter for Mac is the tool for me to convert iTunes purchased or rented audio/music from M4P to MP3. All iTunes audios are encrypted with fairplay DRM protection, it can be played on Apple devices only. Now we can use a tool to remove DRM protection and convert audios at faster speed with lossless quality. After conversion, you will be able to play all these audios on any devices without limitation. Now there is a Christmas discount sales of this tool, click here to learn more details.
