    Probably because it doesn't have that feature.

    OK, thanks but how do you explain that i have this buton in itunes? There i can coose my AV reciever.

    that means, my book is available in my network, isn't it?

    when I try in System Preferences-> Sound, to select an output device there are only the internal speakers listed.

    but not my AV reciever (Denon AVR 3312.)



    that's crazy...

    Because that's a feature of iTunes.

    That isn´t still the answere to my question...

    I think that you just don´t know the answer...

    I had signed up in this forum because I farmstead for help.


    I didn't sign it up for discussions with people which have no idea about it.

    You can tell OS X to stream all your audio to AirPlay speakers in cases where the individual application doesn't support AirPlay (eg: Spotify) ...  This however diverts ALL audio to an AirPlay device:


    In this example, I have a set of AirPlay speakers named "chinawhite":


    Option click on your speaker icon in the menu bar and select your AirPlay speakers.

    Oh I have an idea about it, that's why I already provided you with answers to your questions. If you cant comprehend them , that's your problem.


    Spotify doesn't have an airplay button because Spotifys developers, haven't written the app to support it.  You have that button in iTunes because the app is written to support airplay. What is so hard for you to understand about that?

    Hi eekz,

    Hi eekz,


    I have read your solution above which is the same I find when I go to Spotify help. However despite the fact that I in iTunes get the Airplay option I only get the Internal Speaker option in the list of Output Devices after clicking the speaker icon. How do I get my MAC to find the Airplay and not just iTunes?

    If you have AirPlay enabled speakers/devices and they are configured correctly on your network they should simply appear in the list - There is no further setup necessary.


    Beyond that you may want to revisit the settings on your AirPlay devices which can be different from device to device.


    You may find this support document helpful.
