Version 4 works very well for me. Music, movies, and even flash videos works. Very nice!

There is an open source alternative: http://code.google.com/p/speakershare/

Even with Airfoil closed, the app leaves your movie's audio out of sync, don't matter what player you use.

Airfoil's video player don't support subtitles.

Recommend Airfoil ONLY for playing music, since there's a 2 sec delay. Videos on internet for example have those 2sec.

What I love about the app is because sound buttons in keyboard work normally while playing iTunes.

$25 is a lot of money, especially regarded the fact that it adds a functionality Apple should have provided in the first place. But then especially the latest version with the built-in video player does an excellent job. In fact, I've got fewer problems (none, exactly) with AirFoil than with Airtunes. Also, I got excellent, quick feedback with a working solution when AirFoil didn't work with my new Draft-N Airport Express base stations.
Even if it seems expensive at first, it does an excellent job and is well supported.

There's a windows version too, I wonder if it would work with foobar2000 under Parallels or Fusion. Apparently there are some problems with foobar2000....

v2.0.8 is no longer capturing AOL Radio for me :(. Other apps work. Where's the old version at? (Capturing all system audio is a workaround.)

This app is rediculously overpriced for what it does. $25? Come on. Bring it down to $15 maybe, and we'll have a look at it.

I use this everyday, well worth the money. It means that i can run Internet radio from my radio widget through my stereo without any annoying cables. Perfect :)

It´s amazing. it just works!. I use it with Intel Mac and works!
