(I don't have a Mac, so I can't yet experiment with this for myself.)

Apple has just released a new version of its "iTunes" software 
<http://www.apple.com/itunes/> (currently for Macintosh only) that makes it 
possible to stream AAC or MP3 audio to other computers on a LAN.

If - as is likely - this streaming uses the open standard RTSP/RTP 
protocols, then it may be possible for MPlayer (with the LIVE.COM RTSP/RTP 
streaming support: <http://www.live.com/mplayer/>) to receive and play 
these streams, by giving MPlayer an appropriate "rtsp://" URL.

I'd be interested to learn if anyone has tried playing with this, to see if 
if works.
