The easiest way to stream audio to your XBMC is with the Apple protocol Airplay. Since XBMC Eden (version 11) it is possible to activate Airplay via: System/Settings -> Network -> Services  -> enable AirPlay

Requirements:

  • Linux/Ubuntu users will need to install avahi-daemon:
    sudo apt-get install avahi-daemon #(on Ubuntu)
  • Mac OS X needs no additional set-up.

If you have spotify and you want to sent a music stream to your XBMC you can use Airfoil for Windows and OSX ($25).

With I tunes you can switch to XBMC with the option in the right bottom:

With Iphone and Ipad you can use the “sent to”¬† option since IOS version 4.
