Access and stream your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch Music directly over WiFi to an XBox, a PS3 or any compatible DLNA device. No Wires or special hardware needed. It can even stream to a PC running Windows Media Player. Today the App which enables you to do so, AirMusic, is free for download. If you’ve heard all the hype about AirPlay and are missing out because your don’t have an AppleTV, this app is for you.
How it works:
✔ Connect your iPod, iPhone or iPad to the same WiFi network as your XBox, PS3 or PC.
✔ Start AirMusic.
✔ If you have an XBox, turn it on, navigate to the Music Library and select your device in the list.
✔ If you have a PS3, turn it on, navigate to the Music Menu and select your device in the list. If it shows nothing underneath, it probably means you selected the Movie or Photo node.
✔ If you have a PC running Windows Vista or Windows 7, start Windows Media Player, your iPhone will show up under ‘Other Libraries’.
✔ You can background the app but you will be prompted to relaunch the app every 10 minutes for the music to keep playing. This is an Apple restriction.
✔ If you’re experiencing skipping, turn off High-Quality streams in Settings.
